Reply to: More information about Elna by Lumia
I've known it used here in South Africa, by Afrikaans-speaking parents, as a merger of El(izabeth) and (Hele)na. Traditionally, children were given names to honour their relatives, and these could be very long and old-fashioned, so blended names like Elna, Louette, Runine (honest!) etc come in useful.
