Meaning:Ray of light; sunbeam; fire torch
Elna is a Scandinavian feminine name inspired by Helena and possessing much of its allure. Both derive from the Ancient Greek Hēlēnē (Ελενη)—from hēlios meaning "a ray of light" or "sunbeam"—whose mythological bearer boasted the radiant beauty that launched a thousand ships. Helen of Troy would go on to inspire artists across centuries and cultures, sparking imaginations as the personification of aesthetic perfection. Alternatively, ελενη can also mean "fire torch" in reference to the striking phenomenon of St. Elmo's fire, embuing Elna with the power to inspire awe as a powerful force rather than a pleasing one.
