I adore the name Helen-uh so I say it that way...but really I wait to hear someone else say it because I know there's a few options. My friend's have a little Helena that I have yet to meet in person, but I see all over Facebook...no idea which pronunciation they use! My name has 2 pronunciations and I rarely correct people and neither pronunciation bothers me...I feel that the one my family uses is more "me", but I have had jobs where I get called by the other more "formal" feeling pronunciation and it all works for me.

I pronounce it however I'm told to pronounce it because there are at least three legitimate possibilities where I live. If I were to use it on my child, I would probably spell it Helina to make the desired "he-LEE-na" pronunciation more obvious. (And by "the desired" I only mean that it is my personal favorite)Personal Favorites: Mira Cairdeas and Darrow Paine
