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.

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.
