(La-mee-uh) - This is the Greek word for Vampire.

In Greek mythology, Lamia was a beautiful queen of Libya who had an affair with Zeus. When Hera found out about it, she killed the resulting children. Mad with grief, or perhaps cursed by Hera, Lamia became a baby-eating demon. The name has since become associated with the Lamiae, a race of demonic vampires or succubi, often said to lure men to their deaths in the guise of beautiful women.
