Meaning:Dark challenger; From the alder grove
Delene is a French respelling of the classic Irish name Delaney. Most common among baby girls, it began its journey as the surname Ó Dubhshláine before making its way to northern France. Delene has a dual meaning of "dark challenger" and "from the alder grove," giving it a quirky air of mystery. As baby grows, so will their stubborn—or rather assertive—nature. Not to worry, though! Every argument lost means your little warrior is one step closer to changing the world. Although super close, Delene is not to be confused with the Greek name Selene.
