Its fine though personally I kind of like the way Malachi sounds better. It strikes me as strongly observant Jewish or otherwise very religious. I wouldn't do weird spellings, Mordecai will be misspelled enough the normal way. The meaning is not really known, thought the most likely meaning is "servent of Marduk" "Little boy" is unlikely, though "little man" might be possible. Look up the name on wikipedia for an interesting discussion of it.
