    As far as I know, Elena is the proper spelling, and Elaina, Alaina, Alayna, Alana and so forth are variations. It's a pretty name.

    Elaina- Uh- lay- nuh
    Elena- Uh-lee-nuh

    I say them differently.

    Elena is a form of Helen. Oh Nameberry has Elaina as a form of Elena.

    Elena (I also say this with a "lay-nuh" ending) is my favorite.

    Tough one. Personally I've always said Elena as uh-lay-na and prefer this spelling to the others.
