Lina is a very nice, underused name where I am. It’s great!
Lina is a pretty name! I really love it.
Lina Wertmüller (1928 – 9 December 2021) was an Italian film director and screenwriter. She became the first female director to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director in 1977. In 2019, Wertmüller was announced as one of the four recipients of the Academy Honorary Award for her career. Wertmüller is the second female director ever to have been honoured with an Academy Honorary Award.
Simple to pronounce, but it's very common where I live. Although I prefer Lina as a legal name rather than nickname, it can be a nickname depending on what anyone wants.
Even though I know that this is a diminutive for Evangelina, I don't like it.
It’s okay... it just looks like a mean girl's name.
Even more perfect than Lena...and has so many beautiful potential full names it could be a nickname for.
Very beautiful name! Makes me think of someone who is a very good and caring friend. 10/10.
Also Slovene: [noted -ed]
Also Sardinian:
Also used in Estonia:
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.
Perfect for every culture.
Also Galician:
Really cute and sexy!
Also a Hungarian short form of Karolina used as a given name in its own right:
You will find several bearers on social media.
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.
