    Elena pronunciation

    Our baby girl's name is Elena and everyone is all over the map with pronunciation.

    (1) El-AY-na
    (2) El-EN-a
    (3) EL-en-a

    How do you think it should be pronounced and which is your favorite pronunciation?

    Re: Elena pronunciation

    I have a friend (she's Italian) who pronounces her name ELL-en-a (sort of like Ellen with an A) but EVERYONE calls her e-LAY-na at first. I'm pretty sure the Spanish pronunciation is e-LAY-na and the Italian is ELL-en-a.
