Michele (pronounced [miˈkɛːle]), 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. It can also be a surname.

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?".
