a French form of Helen. I think Helene sounds very elegant & feminine. It is my middle name (passed down from my French grandmother), and I have always liked it because it seems to add some femininity to my ambigendrous first name (Dana).

This French form of Helen (Hélène) is pronounced something like /ay LENN/. It is occasionally found in English speaking countries, usually pronounced /heh LEEN/.
