I've come across the name Mishka very often lately. Why is it such a popular pet name and what does it mean?

I think I need Ruslana to back me up on this one, but as far as I remember it's Russian, and it means something 'little bear'.

After Mishka the talking husky became popular on youtube, the name started to spread a lot. But you can check out the videos for yourself. Emotion: smile
Hehe Stromy is right, "Mishka" means a "little bear". It's actually one of the forms of the male name "Mikhail" (Michael). Another form of the name is "Misha".

I wonder if "Mishka" means something in other languages because the video about the Husky named so wasn't Russian as far as I remember.
mishka? what video about husky do you mean is it on this site? i just saw 2 super charming cat videos and i'd love to see a dog one too if it's cute too ^_^

It means "mouse" in Bulgaria.

It also means "bearer of light" or "niche" in Arabic.

It means little mouse in Czech as well. Standard mouse is mys and myska (mishka) is little mouse. Misa (pronounced Misha) is also used as a short nickname for those named Michael or Michaela. Misa also mean little bear.
