I really love most of the names related to Helena, and this one is no exception. My most favourite is and will always be Helena, but Helene is very elegant and refined, and while Helena is so too, Helene is slightly subtler and lighter in my opinion. What I perceive as a little minus to this name personally is that I never know for sure how to pronounce it in all the languages it's used. He-LEEN? He-LEN? E-LEN? He-LE-ne? He-LE-nuh? He-LAY-nuh? But maybe it's just me, haha. Still, it's very sweet and refined, and simple and modest at the same time. And when I think of this name, I think of someone who is just like it. When I think of this name, I imagine a young girl in her early twenties, with curly, quite long but not too thick dark chestnut chair, big, green eyes, and small, pale face, perhaps a bit freckly but with very beautiful and subtle features. She is petite and skinny, and looks rather fragile. Helene is very shy and gentle and very considerate of others' feelings and cares about what they think of her. She is simple and usually lacks self-confidence, but it's clear to people that she's quite different from people which may make her feel inadequate, but in fact because of this people like being around her, hear about her opinions on different things. She is deep and wise beyond her years, very responsible and caring, also incredibly hardworking and a perfectionist. She feels the best in her own company, but likes helping others so that she might often end up being taken advantage of. She is very sensitive to beauty and doesn't do well with stress. Helene is artistic, can think outside the box, but she loves simplicity above all. Nature makes her happy, and so do all of the small life pleasures. She gets easily moved and cries easily, but also doesn't like to reveal her feelings. If she does though, she does it with passion and you can be sure she is honest about her feelings. She is very thoughtful and loving in her relationships. She has a quiet nature and doesn't like to be in the centre of attention, in fact she panics if something like this happens. I don't even know a single Helene, so that's not how I think all Helenes are or should be like, just how I imagine a person with this name.

Helene is my middle name, and I really love it! It was my mom's grandma's name, and I was named after her. I never met her, but I heard that she was extremely sweet and kind. I'm glad I'm somewhat named after someone like her.

Beautiful name, Helene. A good sister name for Anna. My two little beautiful little girls, if we would be blessed with two little girls. I'm unsure for a middle name for Helene! (=
