Have a look at http://www.geo.ed.ac.uk/scotgaz/anyword.html
If you type in Liney and tick the box for similar-sounding names it comes up with several possibilities.
Or how about Lenzie (Kirkintilloch)? See what Wikipedia has to say about the pronunciation.
GRAY - Inveresk; Lanarkshire
LINDSAY - Lanarkshire
PURDIE - Lanarkshire; W. Lothian
POZZI - Elgin; Lancashire
MACKENZIE, MORISON, MACRAE - Lewis
ARCHIBALD, HAY, HUNTER, SNADDON - Clackmannanshire
COXON, HALL, JACKSON, SHOTTON - Northumberland
