ORIGIN:

NAME ROOT:
HELENē > HELéNē
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
HELENē (‘Ελενη) / HELéNē (Ἑλένη)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek: “Helenē (‘Ελενη) / Helénē (Ἑλένη)”, meaning “torch, flambeau, brilliant, shining light, the bright one”. The name may be connected to “hēlios (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 to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The name was widely used by early Christians due to Saint Helena, the mother of the emperor Constantine I, who according to legend found a piece of the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified when she traveled to Jerusalem. Hermione was the only child of King Menelaus of Sparta and his wife, Helen of Troy.
