I am a Michie from Minnesota with ancestors from Leslie, Fife. Our American pronounciation is "Mishy". There is the "Mishy" Tavern in Virgina (tho the pronounciation waivers), the "Mike-hee" stadium at West Point, "Mishy" Publishing.... it's all over the map. I agree with the previous poster on the typical scottish sister once said the Scottish pronounciation is like saying Mick-hee but with your tongue in backward. During a recent vacation in Scotland the pronounciation was pretty uniform -the ch soft as in "loch".
