I really like Helena, I think it's very pretty! I don't think that I would ever use it personally, but I would love to see it being used! I too prefer the Hel-lay-nuh prn.

I adore Helena, it's actually the number one name I have on my girls name list. I love both pronounciations, but was considering naming any future daughter of mine "Helana" instead if I go with the He-lay-nah pronounciation. One of the reasons I love it so much is because of a favorite actress of mine, Helena Bonham Carter and the song by MCR. It also seems like a very elegant and classy name to me, I adore it.
