It is more possible that surname comes from such Lithuanian name as Kargaudas, Kaributas, Karigailas, Karijotas, ... Short forms of these names are Kargas, Karibas, Karigas, Karijus,...  

Nonsence. To much derivation and too much fantasies. Yes, names Kargaudas, Kaributas, Karigailas, Karijotas are old, reconstructed pagan times Lithuanian names. Names: Kargas, Karibas, Karigas, Karijus are modern Lithuanian names... Not the same time, there is no continuity.

It can be that there were names Karkantas and Karkintas too, the last of them in some way was shortened into Karintas or Korintas. There is Greek surname Karkantas. 

Doubtfull, no evidences. Surname Corinth is no way looks or sounds Lithuanian. The place of the origin not means that automatically could be proved person's ethnicity or origin.
