At first look, I thought this was LEE-na, but it wasn't hard to adjust to saying LINE-uh within a matter of seconds. I have a thing for this name. It wouldn't normally be my taste, but I just really like it!

Lovely sweet sounding short version of names like Angelina or Carolina. VERY popular in Germany, Sweden and that area, but not so much in the US!

Isabella_188 Says:


Honestly, I love this name! I'm kind of happy that this isn't too popular of a name, because if I have a daughter and give her this name, I won't have to worry about her being in a class full of other Lina's.

Lina is a very typical Swedish name. It's my birth name actually.
