Elena is lovely! Honestly, when I've heard it spoken with any accent other than English, it's never Ellen-ah OR eh-LAY-nah, although if an American's saying it I much prefer eh-LAY-nah for the Elena spelling. I've been minorly crushing on how they say Elinor Dashwood's name on the BBC miniseries, though--I'm a bit minorly obsessed with Eleanor said like 'eh-leh-nah' but I think it'd be pretty futile in trying to enforce it here in America (and that's why they call it a GP!).
With the Elena spelling, though, I definitely prefer eh-LAY-nah.Ashley | namenerd | Christian | storyteller

America, so I'm hoping the pronunciation establishment would be easier, but due to the popular The Vampire Diaries show, it might still be a challenge. :/Nathaniel . Eden | Alessandra . Noel
