a young lithuanian woman was brutally murdered in the UK.
RIP.
Viktorija Sokolova murder: Teenage killer convicted after fingerprint was lifted from video in 'legal first'
Viktorija's mother and stepfather, Karolina Valantiniene and Saidas Valantinas, who had reported her missing, were eliminated from the inquiry at an early stage using CCTV footage.
The parents have last names with the same stem but different endingsk, -iene (mother) and -as (father)
Is that true for lithuanian names in general?

It's a bit old-school, but it's possible and (has been) used in many Slavic languages to indicate whether a woman is someone's Valantinas's daughter or wife: Valantinautie or Valantiniene, respectively (I believe).
