Helena Alice

I pronounce Helena like Hel-AY-nah, too much for a little girl?

LOVE it! Helena is one of my top girl's names. I prn it Huh-lay-nuh as well but I definitely hear it prn Huh-LEN-uh, or Helen-uh. To be honest, the prn issue is my largest concern w this name

It also sounds darling with Alice.

I pronounce Helena as Helen-uh, but Helena Alice is very pretty either way.

I say it Helen-uh just because I grew up in MT and that is the state capital spelled the same way.

I like it.. but I work at an elementary school and I feel bad for the kids who always sigh whenever they have to correct the pronunciation of their own name to their teachers all the time. They always know it is coming. Maybe you could spell it Helaynah or Helayna??

I like it. And my first instinct was to pronounce it the same as you, although I've heard it pronounced both ways with that spelling.

Very pretty! And I may be a little biased, but both Helen and Alice are family names so I'm partial
