This popular name in various Slavic countries and in Italy holds considerable Continental appeal. It is the full name of Ukranian-born rising star Mila Kunis, most noted for her award-winning role in the film Black Swan. Another actress bearing the name is Milena Govitch, of Law & Order.
Milena, which entered the U.S. Top 1000 this year, is currently Number 20 in Poland. Short form Mila has been on the U.S. list since 2006, and is now ranking at Number 115--and looks to rise even higher.
