    Some variations on Helen, please!

    I'd like to honor a Helen in my life, but don't love the name Helen, and another close relative just named a baby Elaine. I really am not a fan of Ellen, either.

    This would be a possible middle name for Irene or Iris.

    Thanks!

    I've always thought Helene or Helena are prettier variants of Helen.

    I have a dear friend named Helene, and it fits her and is such a beautiful name. Alena, Eleni and Ilona are also nice variations.
