Hello! I'm also doing research on the last name Michas. My father is from Athens and I know there are many "michas"s in the US who changed their original name "Michaelopolis" at Ellis Island. This is not our family's case, and my great grandfather Athanasios Michas came from the Peleponese in a small town called Leonidian. The name sounds foreign in Greek. You think its originally Hungarian?
