I wouldn't use Lumi as a first name, since no matter how beautiful it is, or how much I love the meaning, it's still just a word. But as a middle name Lumi would be amazing.

Lumi is pronounced LO-mi.

Interesting that Finnish posters don't like this as a name because it's a word. I like it a lot, but I wouldn't like 'Snow' as a name. The Japanese happily use 'Yuki' as a name though.

Well, Lumi is now a very popular name, so Finnish people must like it. We have so many names with meaning and those are names, not just words. Taisto, Satu, Säde, Sade, Jalo, Voitto, Otso, Valo, Meri, Sini, Aamu, Ilta, Taimi, Sisu, Tuuli, Vuokko, Nuppu, Suvi, Marja, Hilla and so on. Lumi was chosen in the official calender and the name day of Lumi is going to be in 2.2.

I knew a Lumikki, which is a rarer version of this. Lumikki is also the Finnish name for Snow White.

Lumi sounds like a short version of Luminous which makes the name even better.

My admiration for Finnish metal bands which consequently helped nurture a growing interest in the culture has ultimately brought me to write this brief review...

"Lumi" is exasperatingly cute-- but that is it's sin; I would never wish to possess a 'cute' name, nor would I think it humorous to bestow on some poor child.

That being said... outside of it's native land it truly has no business being used (unless, of course, you are of Finnish blood), particularly in dominantly English-speaking countries (where it would actually be viewed as Japanese, by the majority.)
In the United States I cannot help but cringe; terribly infantile, somewhat 'kre8tiv,' unprofessional, and perhaps even borderline pretentious.

The Japanese language doesn't even have the "L" sound, no one would mistake this name as Japanese. I think you are being pretty dramatic in your assessment of it, it's really not as SICKENINGLY cute as you make it out to be in my opinion. I think it sounds fine, a simple but pretty name, and I like the comparison to the word luminous someone made above. The original meaning of snow is nice too and pronouncing it the Finnish way or English way, as in the word luminous, both sound good to me.

This name was also used in Estonian, albeit rarely.

I’m absolutely in love with this name, but after researching it a bit I found it means prostitute in Spanish? Is this true, because I can’t find a whole lot of information on it and it’s a shame such a lovely name would mean that.
