    Call me crazy, but...

    ...I am developing a crush on the name Helen. The "Hell" syllable in the beginning always bothered me, but it isn't a big deal to me anymore. WDYT of the name?

    It runs in my family so I'm biased. All the Helens in my family were such nice and strong women so I'm in love with the name!

    I prefer Helena, pronounced Helen-uh, but I took it off my list cause of the pronunciation issues. Helen is lovely and I think with all of the little Helenas on the playground (even if many of them are Lee-nuhs and Lay-nuhs) the name will have more sweet associations. And of course there's the Troy reference. I think it's very usable and ahead of the curve at the moment.

    Helen is lovely, although like valerie2 I'm sort of biased. My Nanna's name is Helen and she is a strong, independent, kind woman. So when I think of the name Helen, all those attributes fit nicely. And then there is the Troy reference and other great namesakes.
