The whole thing is supposed to be the cultural equivalent of 'genes'.
Like, bits of cultural units (i.e. ideas, values, behaviours etc.) that are passed on from person to person. A self-replicating piece of cultural information.
As far as I know, it is a combination of the word 'mimic' and the word 'gene'.
Also, the word 'memetics' exists, just like 'genetics'.
All of this adds up to the pronunciation of the word 'meme' as 'meem'. It's all very simple.
