The name "Irene" was also given to a hurricane which damaged severely the Caribbean, the United States East Coast and Atlantic Canada in 2011.

I don't like it that they give female names to hurricanes. My name is Irene and I'm teased a lot about it!:(

I have loved the name Irene since I first saw the film "Gattaca." Until then I thought Irene was an old-lady's name, but the name seemed really fresh and elegant on Uma Thurman's character in the movie.

Irene (pronounced Ie-REE-nee) Handl (1901-87) was a British actress of Austrian and French parentage. She was a wonderful comedic presence in lots of films from the 1950s and 1960s that still occasionally appear on British television.
The pronunciation of Irene of her generation (reflected in the character Irene Heron in Galsworthy's "The Forsyte Saga" in the BBC television series of the late 1960s) is seldom if ever heard in Britain anymore.
