Meaning:*
This name derives from the Ancient Greek: “Helenē (‘Ελενη) / Helénē (Ἑλένη),” meaning “torch, flambeau, brilliant, shining light, the bright one.” The name could be related to “Hḗlios (Ἥλιος),” the personification of the Sun in Greek mythology. In Greek mythology, Helen of Troy was the daughter of Zeus and wife of Menelaus, King of Sparta, and considered the most beautiful woman in the world. Early Christians widely used the name through Saint Helen, the mother of Emperor Constantine I, who, according to legend, found a piece of the cross of Jesus Christ during his pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Hermione was the only child of King Menelaus of Sparta and his wife, Helen of Troy.
