Elena

Origin: Greek

Meaning: Elena is a cognate of Helen, the English form of Helene, a name of uncertain etymology though it could be related to Greek helene meaning “torch” or “corposant”, though it might also be linked to selene meaning “moon”.

Elena is also a variant transcription of Yelena, which is the Russian form of Helen.
