It's nice as a nickname. I knew a girl named Angelina who went by Lina. It seems kind of minimalist as a legal name, though.

LEE - nuh is a wonderful name. However, it's just so hard to spell. I have a friend with this name, but it's spelled Leina. I love that spelling, but people call her Layna. Lena looks like len - nuh. I like Lina, but it could just as easily be pronounced Lynn - nuh, or Lyne - nuh. Leena just looks bad. Leana should be pronounced Lee - ann - nuh, or lee - auh - nuh, and while I like Liyna, no one else does. Lina and Leina are the best spellings. Please choose between them.

I like this name. It's not very common. I knew an Italian girl and a Spanish girl with this name.

This name is very beautiful. But it also seems childish to me. It also reminds me of limes for some reason.

I think Lina is a beautiful name, but only pronounced LIE-na. LEE-na is okay, but LIE-na is better. It is especially good as a short form of Caroline, Carolina, Adeline, Adelina, Madeline, and other names ending in -line or -Lina.

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.

Lina is an elegant name! Another (perhaps even more intriguing and more unusual) version of the same name is Linna.

Lina Lamont was the actress with the awful voice on the classic movie "Singin' in the Rain." In spite of this connotation I find the name quite beautiful.
