Saint Michael is a name adopted by Christians for the archangel Michael, the commander of the host of Heaven, the army of angels who fight on God's behalf. Christian tradition has it that Michael led the war against Satan. He is mentioned in Islamic and Jewish scriptures as well.

The name Michael means 'Who is like God?' in Hebrew. Do not confuse it with Michal, which means 'brook' or 'stream'.
