Lena "LEH-nah" vs. Lena "LAY-nah"

Hello, my husband and I are expecting a baby girl in August. We were reassured in our last poll about the pronunciation of the name Lena (as we dislike LEE-nah) and have decided to use it. We like both of the pronunciations above and are trying to choose between them. I think I prefer LEH-nah by the slightest bit but we’re still unsure. Thoughts? Full name will be Lena Juliet. Thank you!

Genie's Mailbag

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.
