Pronunciation of Leif in US

It's like Layf. ei in the American English name is always a long A sound, as in neighbor or weight. The only reason Americans have adopted leaf is because of early mishearing's and the only relatable sound being leaf as a leaf on a tree. There is literally no justifiable reason Americans should be saying it as leaf unless it is a personal preference. Also even if a larger group of people believe something over a smaller group does not make the larger group correct, this just means that more people are wrong.
