    I really like it. It's classic while still being unusual. And if you wanted a nn I think "Lennie" is super cute.

    I'm probably the only one who has a hang up with the fact that the name contains "Hell" in it. It just doesn't sound attractive to me for that reason. I know that most berries like the name though!

    Helen is everything I love in a girl's name. It's classic, elegant, and distinctly feminine without being frilly. It has a long history of use and a simple beauty about it that I quite like. The association with light is pleasant, and it's also my great-grandmother's name. She's one of my personal heroes, so that connection is very significant to me. I went through a phase where I considered variants like Helena and Helene, but I always came back to Helen. I really love the name.

    I knew a woman named Helen who was of Chinese heritage. She was quiet and very smart so I have a positive association for the name.. Although I slightly prefer Helena, Helen wouldn't have the pronunciation problems of the longer name. And that would probably be part of her appeal: its sweet simplicity. Helen is vintage, down-to-earth and sounds like the name of a grown up. Nothing wrong with these traits as far as I can see.
    All the best,
