Hell-lehn-eh vs. Hell-leen-ah vs. Hell-ain-ah

How would you pronounce Helena if you saw it written say on a passport, a school register and so on? Also, if you could say where you are FROM it might help. I won’t mind so much about variant pronunciations if I find it’s to do with nationality. Hope this was clear enough and thank you all~ Evie

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
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.
