Correct pronunciation of Liev

I’ve heard both leev & lee-EV, but I’m not sure which is correct

I’d say it lee-EV, myself

Oh, I love Liev!!! I say Lee-ev. I think that’s right? It’s a Yiddish form of [name_m]Lev[/name_m] (all of my great grandparents spoke Yiddish as a first language), & means ‘heart’. :heart: :heart: :heart:


I say lee-EV, but I cannot say for sure if that’s correct.

I also think it’s lee-EV but have never actually encountered it in real life.
