In Lithuania, the name Lina and its variant form Linė are also frequently encountered as feminine forms of the masculine name Linas, which can be the Lithuanian form of Linus as well as be an independent Lithuanian given name. In other words: in Lithuania, Lina (and Linė) is often more than just a short form of given names that end in -Lina.
