Saimi is a Finnish name, pronounced SIGH-mee. It became popular roughly a hundred years ago, and it's not much used these days. Some people say the name has gone through a sort of a small-scale revival along with the other romantic "granny" names, though.
As to the history, some sources link the names Saimi and Saima to the Lake Saimaa in eastern Finland.
Hope this helps!
