How would you pronounce this?DP says 'El-ay-naI say 'El -*e*n - aMIL says it like 'Eleanor'
Sorry I was going for I say 'El - en - a' with the emphasis on the second syllable
I'd say El-*eh*-na, having being influenced by greek DH. Before that I would've said El-*ay*-naIf that makes sense
Think it depends whether you're going for the Greek version, the Spanish version, the Italian version, at any other version. The Elena I know is of Spanish extraction, and says Eh-LEN-ah.
El-ay-naI would love to use it but a good friend beat me too it!
The one I know pronounces it like Eleanor. I was quite surprised when I found out that's how she's spells it.
Eh-leh-na as influenced by the Polish Elena I know.
The Russian one I know is El-lay-na.
El-ay-na. Based on the rather popular Vampite Diaries TV show!
This was supposed to be dd3s name , but the different pronounciations just proved too much for me. I would say Eh Len ah but at one point I had 4 different ways of saying it and it just was irritating me. It's a really lovely name.
The Ellen-a I know spells it with a second l. The Eh lay na I know spells it with one l. The elena is Russian and it is pronounced eh lay na in Russia where she is from.
Ellie Goulding is Elena, so it may not matter if everyone calls her that. I would say it like Eleanor.
No way is Eleanor (or Elinor) spelled Elena! Elena is a 'proper' name but pronounced entirely differently to Eleanor/Elinor.
El ay na. I love this prn.
