Lithuanian to English translations [Non-PRO]
Lithuanian term or phrase:Melinis
It is my last name. I wondered if it had a meaning.
Explanation: Could be construed as an adjective formed from "mėlis", the color blue. However, note that the adjective meaning blue in modern Lithuanian is spelled "mėlynas". This assumes the name is derived from a Lithuanian root, which it may not be. Very often names are just names and their origin cannot be traced with any degree of certainty. Also, the spelling could have been changed.
