Wrong question. Prussian Lithuanians named themselves as lietuwninkai. It is the old self-name of Lithuanians, I recomend to read Z. Zinkevičus Lietuvių kalbos istorija. There is explained. Have no mood explained what's known. Simply self-name of Lithuanians who lived in Lithuania evolutionated: shortened to lietuviai. And currently such is.

 

Evolutionated, shortened? When? Maybe in 17th centyry? Because in 16th when according to you  lithuanians migrated to Nederuva they still used unshortened name.

Congratulations! You Incognito made graet discovery of our history, just I am not sure you alone or in company with ZInkevicius.
