Extending a threaded hose for faucet


At the image below, you can see what I'm stuck with for my faucet. The line is too short to reach my supply (3/8" comp). In the image, you can see this connector has a 1/2" FIP for the supply, while the other end, which i dont know the name of, connects to the faucet.

My question: is there a way to extend this line, in ANY way? Is there an extension piece that connects 2 hoses with 1/2" FIPs on each side? Or can the hose be cut and extended somehow?

Or do i have to extend my copper supply line higher up (please no).

Thanks

Kinda simple really. . .

1/2" close nipple in the end of that supply, and then a 1/2" FIP x 3/8 comp faucet supply.
