It actually doesn't mean "luck" in Latvian, however it's similar to a word that means "happiness, fortune, luck" - "laime". [noted -ed]

If I saw Laima I would say "lie-ma" but I can imagine people (on purpose or accidentally) saying "lame-ah" all the time. Too bad because I like the name; it's close to my heritage but looks and sounds Arabic.

The Laima I know pronounces it LYE-ma / Lime-ah.

I'm in love with the look and the meaning of this exotic name. It's a shame that either pronunciation you use, it's baaaad.

Actually, it is not pronounced LAME-uh, it is pronounced LYE-ma.

How is this name pronounced -- LAME-ah?! Even if it isn't, people will DEFINITELY TRY to say it that way! Not a nice thing to do to a little girl!
