Elin #belarus

Does anyone have information about the surname, ELIN?
No real knowledge, but I have seen names like Ilitskii and
Ilinskii occasionally spelled with an initial E. The suffix -skii
means ">from the town of", so I assume that there are towns called
Ilit and Ilin, which might be the source of the name.
