Liev: I would pronounce it Lee-ev, and I think that is the pronunciation most people would try to give it, so you might find yourself doing ALOT of correcting of the name if you use it!

Leif: I've known people with this name who pronounce it "leef", "lafe", and "life". I don't mind the name, but tend to steer clear of names that have so many different pronunciations that are fairly common, because I think it would be frustrating to be constantly correcting people.
