Well, based on your description I'm guessing you're using $mnemonic as part of the database name. If that's true, I'd use it as a separate parameter in your function and use double quotes instead of single
function dbaseconfig {
	param
	(
		[Parameter(Mandatory=$true,
					Position=0)]
		[string]$servername, 
		[Parameter(Mandatory=$true,
					Position=1)]
		[string]$mnemonic
		
	)

	add-pssnapin microsoft.exchange.management.powershell.e2010
	Get-MailboxDatabase -server $servername | 
	set-mailboxdatabase -name "Mailbox Database $mnemonic"
}
