There doesn't seem to be a standard pronunciation outside Scotland or the British Isles. I have been adressed as per the original in both Scotland and England. The "ch" in Scottish dialect (pronounced like a strongly aspirated "h" with a slight stop) does not exist in American English. Therefore immigrants to the US (Canada ??) have made do with approximations in order to be readily comprehended. One branch of my family in Colorado pronounces is more like Mickey. We pronounce it like Mitchell but with an "ee" at the end.
