Re: "Mickey" or "Mitchie"?

My granfather, David Michie emigrated to Toronto Canada from Scotland in the early 1900s. As a young boy I could rarely understand him as he talked to me with his deep brouge and the typical scotish blur of the c and h together when he pronounced our last name. My father and his brothers have pronounced it as "Mickey" and we continue to in our family to this day (it is a never ending explanation and correction to those who have never met a michie before). This is my first time to this sight and it does my heart good to know that there are other Michie's out there that pronounce the name as Mickey.
