My old "baby names" book listed Mishiki as an Egyptian name meaning "apricot" or "east". That, I think, is an obvious fiction; and googling Mishiki brings up almost exclusively Japanese sites.
I don't know anything about Japanese, and comparing the name to other names in the database hasn't helped, as the -ki suffix seems to have multiple meanings. Can anyone who knows Japanese decipher the meaning?
I've always thought this would be a great name for a cat, but I'm loath to use it unless I know what it means. :-D
