This is my absolute favourite name for a girl. I was just wondering how you pronounce it? I ONLY like the pronounciation of HELEN-UH... Though I know some people say it differently...

I've only known one Helena, and she pronounces is huh-LEEN-uh, so that's how I automatically say it. But if someone corrects me it's not I'll keep calling them huh-LEEN-uh, lol.

Okay, I LOVE this name - but there are several pronunciations and that is a huge issue for me!

Ways I have heard it:

Helen-uh
Huh-LEN-uh
Huh-lay-nuh


I have no idea which is right, and to be quite honest, I don't think I consistently use the same prn. two times in row....I am not even sure which prn is my favorite. Huh-lay-nuh is prettiest, however I feel like Huh-len-uh is most accurate. Helen-uh is the way Helena Bonham Carter says it...ugh. Too many options

I think it would be equally mispronounced among those 3 options too. I don't dislike any of them. My middle name is Helene, so I would probably tend to say huh-leen-uh.

Thanks for your input!

If I have a girl, I really hope to use this name... with the pronounciation like Helena Bonham Carter.

Unless I see it as Helena Bohem Carter I pronounce it Huh-Lay-Nuh. But Helen-ah is just a beautiful! I love that name!

I read it as Helen-uh, but if I met someone who pronounced it differently, I would pronounce it the way they wanted.
