Input hiragana in the edit box, and choose radio buttons. choices mean like this:
( )hiragana(pronunciation) ( )all ( )contain (*)kanji (*)legal kanji only (*)match perfectly
You need to notice that this dictionary contains a lot of fictional names. Some kanji, having an evil meaning or very complexed , cannot be registered as a name by law in Japan. About 3000 types of kanji are legislated to name someone. This is why the second choice exists in the web page.
Those three "Mishiki" can exists legally.
First one is just ordered kanji by their sound and it looks little bit nonsense for me, but it literally means "purple fruit princess / girl".
Second one is meaningful. it literally means "beautiful purple princess / girl". Purple is a color implies nobility.
Last one also has a good meaning. it means "beautiful cloth / knit".
