The name Mitchell is of British origin and is a variation of the name Michael, which means "of Saint Michael" and "who is like God". It is derived from the Hebrew root word "Mikha'el," which translates to "who is like God?". The name is both a given name and a surname, and it has been influenced by the spiritual warrior Saint Michael, the champion of justice. The surname Mitchell has two main etymological origins. In some cases, it is derived from the Middle English and Old French (Norman French) name Michel, which is a vernacular form of the name Michael. In other cases, the surname is derived from the Middle English (Saxon and Anglian) words "michel," "mechel," and "muchel," meaning "big". The surname can also be adopted as an equivalent of Mulvihill, an English-language surname derived from the Irish-language Ó Maoilmhichíl, meaning "descendant of the devotee of St. Michael".
