Who was Micha’s father and what did the fathers name mean?

There are several people named Micha in scripture (see list of scriptures below), but the most famous was probably Mephibosheth’s son.

The name Mephibosheth literally means the “dispeller of shame”. I always loved the story of Mephibosheth who was crippled when dropped at birth and no doubt did live a life of shame in hiding. However, the Bible tells us King David had great mercy on Mephibosheth and invited him to come and live in the King’s palace and even dine with the royal family. His shame was truly taken from him and dispelled…much as we are invited to come to the King of King’;s table and spend an eternity with him even though we are far from perfect and all have things of shame. His great mercy and love dispells this shame and instead replaces it with a victor;s crown!

2 Samuel 9:12 And Mephibosheth had a young son, whose name was Micha. And all that dwelt in the house of Ziba were servants unto Mephibosheth.

Nehemiah 10:11 Micha, Rehob, Hashabiah,

Nehemiah 11:17 And Mattaniah the son of Micha, the son of Zabdi, the son of Asaph, was the principal to begin the thanksgiving in prayer: and Bakbukiah the second among his brethren, and Abda the son of Shammua, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun.

Nehemiah 11:22 The overseer also of the Levites at Jerusalem was Uzzi the son of Bani, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Micha. Of the sons of Asaph, the singers were over the business of the house of God.
