This French form of Helen/Ellen is damn sexy and slightly exotic. On paper, at least. My only concern: if Anglophone communities can faithfully reproduce it or not since it contains two accented characters in printed legal documents and such. Sure, this makes the name a bit unusual, but it seems to take a bit of work...

I am fond of this name. In fact I like it better than Helena (which I do love). Helene makes me think of a beautiful woman.

There's a French opera called "La Belle Hélène".

I adore this name! I'm using it as the name for a main character in a story I'm writing (an English, Goth girl with French heritage) and I think it suits her well. Helene is a beautiful name, so much more so than Helen! I pronounce it "hay-LEHN" or "heh-LEHN", because I have known people with this name who pronounced it that way.

In the film and book "Silk," by Alessandro Barrico, Helene is the wife of the main character, Herve. In the film she's played by Keira Knightley.

Some English use this name instead of Helen (Give the name a little personality, I personally think) but they pronounce it with a combination of Helen and Helene - "Hel-leen" instead of "Hel-en" or "ay-leen".

Can also be pronounced "ee-len" ee as in Bee or "e-len" Helen without the H.
