I thought this was a variation of Lynn!

Yes, it can be a variant of Lynn, usually. It can also be a nickname for Linzee, Lindsay, Lindsey, Linda, and so on. It's very beautiful. I'm going to name my daughter in the future Linzee, nickname Lin.

You don't pronounce this name like you do with "Lynn." It's pronounced Leeng in Chinese.

The character "林" with two trees actually means a grove or a copse. (A single tree is "木") If you looked up "forest" in a Chinese dictionary, the character you would get is "森" with three trees. 木, 林, 森. Tree, grove, forest.

It is said that the emperor of China gave this surname to a commoner out of gratitude. He was given this surname because he lived in hiding in the forest for five years.

This is better as a feminine name if it really does mean gem.

In the book "The Glass Demon," the main character's nickname is "Lin," which is short for "Lindisfarne" (a name in which she utterly despises).

I see this name as super masculine, mostly because of the actor Lin-Manuel Miranda. He's amazing.
