I like the name Helena as an option for a girl but there seems to be so many ways of pronouncing it. Would you pronouce it;
1. Hell - ay- na
2. Hell - een-a
Anybody I know with that name pronounce it 'Hell - een-a'!
I'd go with 1.
I always think option one, Hell-ay-na, as in Helena Christensen.
Id go with 2!
I'd also go with option 2!
I'd pick option 1. I too would think of Helena the model!
I'd go for option 2 - partly because DD's name is a shortened version of it! I always think the third choice is more of an English pronunciation.
My cousin and a friends girlf are pronounced option #2.
In Ireland we'd pronounce it like number 2.
