Meaning:Shining light; Sun ray
Hellen is a variation of Helen and comes from the Greek Hēlēnē, meaning “shining light” or “sun ray.” This feminine title is related to the Greek word for the sun, “hēlios,” and the name Selene which means “moon.” An enchanting celestial name, Hellen is steeped in antiquity and emanates timeless charm. A title that has survived for millennia, Hellen has recently stepped away from the charts for reasons as mysterious as the dark side of the moon. However, vintage names are on the rise, and Hellen may get to ride the wave. If not, Hellen still makes a beautiful and unique name for your one-of-a-kind treasure. Baby Hellen will always carry the sun and moon's energy, never failing to illuminate the path ahead.
