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 teenberry's mind ~~Vote on combo possibilities (updated 4/5/14)

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
