Michele ([miˈkɛle]), is an Italian male given name, akin to the English male name Michael.

Michele, pronounced /mɪˈʃɛl/ mi-SHEL, is an English female given name that comes from the French Michèle. It is a variant spelling of the more common (and identically pronounced) name Michelle.

Both names derive from the Latin Michael referring to archangel Michael, and originally derive from the biblical Hebrew name מיכאל meaning "Who is like God?".
