I think both are lovely. Good choices! Sorry not much help...if pressed my vote would go to Helena

Pronounced He-le-na or He-lay-na?

Juliet - also like the Juliette spelling.

Both are gorgeous but I do have a soft spot for Helena

Helena. Really dislike Juliet, sorry.

I really love Ellene, which is quite similar smile

Both are lovely.

I really couldn't choose between them blush <unhelpful post>

Juliet, as long as it's pronounced with the emphasis on the first syllable so not like Juliette.

I like Helena too.

Both nice, but I prefer Juliet.

I know three people whose name is spelt 'Helena' and all pronounce it differently. One is Helen-a, one is Hel-ee-na and one is Hel-ay-na. I wouldn't use the name for this reason.

mistermagpie Thu 07-Dec-17 21:17:23

Plus Juliet is way nicer!

Helena!! 😍

Helena. Juliet isn't my favourite and is too Romeo and Juliet.

Forgot to add that anything with a Julie in it is awful imo

Helena. Pronounced Helen-a not Hel-aina or Hel-eena.
