I have only met one Lina in my 40+ years. She pronounced her name LEE-nah.

My name is Lina and I am 14 years old. I also pronounce it LEE-nah
but some of my friends pronounce it Linah. ( I come from Sweden originally)

I have also only met one Lina - but she pronounced it LIE-nah.

We often call our daughter Lina as a nickname for Caroline. We pronounce it LIE-nah (as in the last syllable of the name/state Carolina). She was born in 2004 and it suits her very well. It's lovely, unique, and spunky, just like she is. I've never met or heard of any others called LIE-nah.

Hi, my name is Lina, it's my full name & I also pronounce it "Lee-nah"... Personally the name is special to me,
people always ask me is it the same as "alina" "Lie-nah" or short for "Angelina", and to me those names feel like completely different names.
