Origin of the name HELENA.
Etymology of the name HELENA.
Meaning of the baby name HELENA.


HELENA.  Latin form of Greek Helene (q.v.), meaning "light."  The name appears in Arthurian legend, as the niece of Hoel, Duke of Brittany. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Usage: America, Denmark, England, France (Heléna), Holland, Ireland, Italy, Latin, Poland, Spain. 

Helena, St., or Flavia Julia Helena Augusta, first wife of Constantius Chlorus, and mother of Constantine the Great, born about A.D. 248, died about 327.  The statement of Eusebius that Constantine paid his mother great honours, and caused her to be proclaimed Augusta to all the troops, and struck her image on gold coins, is no doubt generally correct, but it is unfortunately unaccompanied with any dates (Vita Const. iii. 47).  Silver and copper coins are found with the name Flavia Helena Augusta, struck in her lifetime. (A Dictionary of Christian Biography, Literature, &c., Smith, 1880)
