Here in the Rockey Mountains we call it Michie (Mitchie). However, my dad got some correspondence from a Mrs. Forbes who described it as being more like Mickey Mouse. I met a Michie in Dublin last year who said he had always pronounced his name Mitchie, but that when he was married, the priest called it Myshey. I talked, by phone, with a man in London, who knew Michies in Aberdeen. He said it was Mickey (with the accent on the last syllable.) I wonder if at one time it was Mckee. Take your pick. I'll stick with Michie, since I always have, and continue to spell it when people look puzzled and ask "What?"
