Comments for HELLEN:

This is also a male name, borne in Greek myth by the son of Deucalion and Pyrrha (the Greek equivalents of Noah and his wife).

Hellen is supposedly the ancestor and namesake of all Greeks today, who're still called the Hellenes in his honour.

Yikes! When I see this name as a variant of 'Helen' I just kind of shudder lol. It isn't feminine AT ALL and sounds very harsh when spoken. I would NOT name my baby girl this. It sounds outrageously cold when emphasis is put on the second 'L'. As a historical male Greek (I think) name, it's fine. But not in my opinion as a little girls name/spelling. Just my opinion. :)

Although I like also the name "Helen" I think "Hellen" is somehow much more beautiful. I like "Hellen", because it isn't so ordinary and because it is a bit "fuller" name than "Helen". I also like how "Hellen" makes the name "Ellen" without "h" and how "Helle" means "warm weather" in Finnish. I think it's just beautiful and unique name!

The first four letters are not a good name to have.

For some reason, I like this spelling much more than Helen. Helen reminds me of old ladies and Helen Hunt; Hellen reminds me of spunky teenagers.
If I had a daughter named Hellen, or was called so myself, I would probably prefer to call/be called Nell.
