how do you pronounce

the name "leif"? we both really like it but i don't like the proper pronunciation (layf), i like "leaf", which is how i've always heard it pronounced.

I'm inclined to say Leaf. Then again, I couldn't use my first choice for Ben due to no one pronouncing it right.

This is who I think of....although I don't know the "correct way" to pronounce his name, it's always been Leaf to me.

I've known two Leifs who both pronounced it "layf," so that's how I would say it.
