lay-nah vs. lee-nah vs. len-nah

How is the name Lena pronounced? I wanted to name my daughter Lena thinking it was pronounced lay-nah, but then one of my friends said it was pronounced lee-nah, and then my cousin said it was pronounced Lenn-ah. Does anybody know the actual pronunciation? ( I’m pretty sure I’m only going to use it if it’s pronounced the first way)
Which baby name is best?
 Lay-Nah
 Lee-Nah
 Len-Nah

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
