How do you pronounce this though?
Though I'm certain that this isn't the correct pronunciation, I can say with a bit of confidence that the pronunciation is somewhat like ['leo̯v.dæj] (LEWV-day).
This name is associated with the Middle English name Loveday, a Christian name common in medieval England (which has now become confined to Cornwall, where it still survives in occasional use). It was originally a nickname for a person who had an association with a 'loveday', or it was bestowed on boys or girls on a 'loveday', a day appointed for a meeting between enemies and litigants with a view to an amicable settlement of disputes or feuds, according to medieval custom.
