I've ALWAYS heard HEL-ehn-uh, and I think it is absolutely GORGEOUS.
If you like hel-LAY-nuh, spell it that way.
Helaena (At lest I THINK ae makes the ay sound)I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

I like Hell-eh-nah the best, followed by huh-lay-na (huh part is soft h sound with the uh sound; sorry, not the best with pronunciations).~inside this collegeberry's mind ~~(updated 6/26/15)
Reconstructing with the input of a loving Norwegian boyfriend
~♀ ~ Alice Cordelia ~ Aurora Seraphina ~ Cassia Elizabeth* ~ Genevieve Astrid ~ Juliet Sunniva* ~
♂ ~ Benjamin Axel ~ Jack Sebastian ~ Ronan Oliver ~
* = Still thinking about and considering other middle names
(I'm using the 3 syllable pronunciation of Cassia)

I think he-LAY-nuh is prettier, but HELL-eh-nuh is the pronunciation I've heard most frequently so I don't think I'd use it if I hated that pronunciation.Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
