  • Helena is the most common. I like Helena better than Elaina.

    Helen: Cognate of the Greek Helene, which is derived from the root ele (light, torch, bright). The name is born in Greek legend by the beautiful wife of the king of Sparta. Her abduction by the Trojan prince Paris sparked off the Trojan War. Variations: Helena, Helene.

    As far as I can tell, Elaina is a variation of Elaine, which is a variation of Helen.
