I do not remember what website I got this information from but I had read that Alena is the Greek version of Helen, and therefore has the same meaning as Helen, some interpreting it as "torch" and some interpreting it as "light".

Czech pet form is Alenka, which was used instead of "Alice" in the translation of "Alice in the Wonderland" (probably because Alice might sound rather rough and foreign in Czech.) Alenka by itself is also quite a commonly used Czech name.

I was named Alena after someone from the former Czechoslovakia. Alena pronounced it
Oll-in-a and because I was her namesake she always called me Alenka pronounced Oll-inka. I have always thought my name was beautiful and different.

It can be derived either from the Old High German word for "precious" or from the Irish language term "a leanbh"" or "child", in English.

In Gaelic Alannah as itself is the term for "beauty" or "serenity". It's sometimes considered a feminine form of Alan.
