Comments for ALENE:

Alene is also of Greek origin. It is pronounced ay-leen. The English translation of this name is Helen which means "light" in Hebrew. Variations of the name in Greece/Macedonia also include Eleni, Lenio (nickname/endearing term - pronounced len-yor), Lanka (Macedonian) and of course as mentioned above Helen. There is one variation of this which is a "one of" individual name Alene but pronounced "Ahh-len-EE" (which is my name).

This is also my name which is pronounced ay-leen. Some people have always had a difficult time pronouncing it. Even pronouncing it "uh-leen" or "ah-leen". But everyone has always commented on how pretty the name is and I have grown to like it.

In Danish "Alene" means "alone" (pronounced something like Ah-leh-nu). Therefore I would never ever use the name!

My name is Alene, it is also French and means sharp or bright as in sharp-minded or bright-eyed. I have seen it listed in baby books as Hebrew, but had a Jewish friend that studied Hebrew and she strongly disagreed that it was of Hebrew derivation. Alene is part of the tribal name of the Native American tribe Cour d'Alene, as well as a city in Idaho. I grew to love my name, but hate the ay-leen pronunciation. The Canadian Prime Minister's wife had the name Aline, a variation of Alene.

My name is Alene and it's pronounced A-leen. Not "UH-leen" or "AH-leen" which are perfectly fine names, but I feel the pronunciation of the "A" as in "acorn" or "Amy" is much more interesting. I've heard nothing but good things about my name. The only thing bad I can say about it is when I was younger I heard the kids calling me "Alien" a few times, but it never hurt me or scarred me for life or anything. I thought it was funny. Kids will find a way to make fun of any name.

There's a song called coeur d'Alene by The Head And The Heart, and I'm pretty sure coeur d'Alene is a place too. I pronounce it uh-leen, it's very pretty as well as Eileen :)
