This is incorrect. Lomography comes from the name of a Soviet Compact camera, the LOMO LC-A which was derived from the Cosina CX-1.

Here is a fuller history of the camera and how it became a popular device in Europe and the West and spawned the Lomography Movement, dedicated to using lo-fi cameras in opposition to the exactitude and predictability of digital cameras.
