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)

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
