Princess Victoria Eugénie of Battenberg, later Queen of Spain, was called Ena. Her full name was Victoria Eugénie Julia Ena.

In the case of princess Victoria Eugénie Julia Ena, her middle name was apparently a misreading by the minister who baptized her of a handwritten note. The originally intended name was Eva!

Ena Sharples was a character in the TV soap opera "Coronation Street".

I've read that too, but the name was Eua (a Gaelic name), not Eva!

There was a song Ena (performed by the band Haustor). I got my name because of the song.

Imagine if you said 'hi Ena.' Then people would be laughing like one.

Outside Ireland, this name is better known as a diminutive for girls' names ending in -ena or -ina, such as Helena, Georgina, Christina, Regina, Eugenia, etc.

A variant form is Ina.

"Short form of Helena or Eugenia, also used in Ireland as a variant of Ethne. In general use since the naming of Queen Victoria's grand-daughter, Princess Victoria Eugénie Julia Ena, always known as Princess Ena. She later became Queen of Spain. Now rarely found."

Kinda cool! And a lot less common than the overused Emma. This would be a refreshing choice.
