All I can think of when I see this name is Lamia from Greek mythology. It's still a lovely name.

That is my niece's name, but it`s spelled Lamia. It also can be spelled Lamija, but I don`t like that spelling. Lamya is the best.

Bananarama, I was just going to say the meaning sounds sexual.

It's a sweet name, and I'm sure in Arabic/Middle Eastern Culture it's considered beautiful. But if you name your child this in an English-speaking country, the child should be prepared for some merciless teasing if the playground kids find out what her name means.

I know a little girl named Lamya. It is pronounced like it looks: lam-yah. Everyone calls her Lulu for short.

This name makes me think of a llama. A furry creature with big hairy hips. Like a hippo.

I know a little girl by the name of Limya. This is the way her mother spells her name. It is a very unique name, even though I don't know what the meaning of Limya is. Lamya means "having beautiful dark lips."
