Among the local people, there are two common interpretations of the origin of Krikliniai name. One says that beside the Moliūnai mound and Krikliniai there once were lakes, where wild ducks ("kryklės" in Lithuanian) used to breed. The others say that the name developed from Mr. Krikas‘s fields of flax.
