yes i meant Helen from Troy and got confused a little with the Greek goddess of the Moon which is Selene (in Greek).

About the origin, like i said, Alena, when it's from Eastern Europe i'm pretty sure it's from Helena, because St. Helen is an important Saint there. That's a major reason why the name Jelena and Elena are so common in Russia and as Belarussia was long time part of Russia, there are hardly any difference except for the way of writing: Alena Elena.

that's all
