This Greek name, meaning “shining light” became engrained in mythology with Helen of Troy, the god Zeus’s mortal daughter. Known as “the face that launched a thousand ships,” Helen's abduction resulted in the Trojan War.
Variants include Helene in French, Halina in Polish and Eilidh in Scottish. Alanna is also a more modern and popular variant of the name.
