Like many RNAV point, there is an etymology or theme. In this case, it is located very close to the MEdical City Lewisville heliport.

Not to start a "gif"/"gif" debate, I would pronounce it like "meh-kl"

Just like the age old dilemma going into TEB, is it pronounced Wilkes-Barr or Wilkes-Barry?

Wouldn't that be "meh-CIL"?

lol... well I know it's on the Forck2 SID... it was just an idle question, really - it's just funny how some controllers call it "mekkil" and some say "michelle" .. just figured there was a story behind it.
I just say it however the controller said it..
