Baby Name Helena

Meaning of Helena - What does the name Helena means?
Gender: Girl Name
Origin: Polish
Name Meaning: A borrowing from the English, Helena is from the Greek Helene, a name derived from the root -ee (light, torch, bright). The name is borne in Greek legend by the wife of King Menelaus of Sparta. Her abduction by the Trojan prince Paris sparked off the Trojan War. The name became popular throughout the Christian world due to the fame of St. Helena (248-327), the mother of Constantine the Great. Her influence led to the toleration of Christianity, and she is credited with finding the True Cross buried in a hillock close to Calvary
