Etymology

Derived from the nominal adjective みごと【見事・美事】 migoto "beautiful; magnificent". It was subsequently rendered as a true adjective by suffixing on い -i (thus みごとい *migotoi), which coalesced as みごて migote in some areas of Kagoshima (usually associated with Satsuma) and みごち migochi in others (Osumi, Miyazaki). The か -ka adjective variants みごとか migotoka and みごっか migokka are also sometimes heard.
