    Helena has a few pronunciations that are all correct so it’s down to the parents to pronounce it how they prefer

    HELL-ehn-a

    hell-AYN-a

    hell-EEN-a

    I always thought it was either heleena or helayna but the british pronounce it helen a like helena bonham carter which was kind of a let down because I always thought it was a sophisticated sounding name but then, I don't really like the name Helen so the other two pronunciations are prettier to me. Short answer, is if it is a name for you or your baby, however the hell you want to (no pun intended)

    It depends on the country. In English-speaking ones, it's GENERALLY HELL-en-uh". In Romance-language countries, it's Hell EH nuh.

    It can be either HEL-uh-nuh or Huh-LAY-nuh. Both are correct.

    There are multiple pronunciations.

    If you're referring to the capital of Montana, it's pronounced with the emphasis on the first syllable. HELL-uh-nuh.

    How ever the parent decides they want it to be pronounced.

    Most common is probably Ha - lay - na
