It means = light
like the greek goddess elena, goddess of light
Elena means shining light. It means that you care about nature and the health if the world. When anyone needs help you do. You care about both inner and outer beauty.
Elena is usually Italian or Spanish, though it is often found in other countries too. It can be pronounced EL-e-na or e-LE-na.
Elena is a Latinised version of the old Greek name Helene (which pronounced all three syllables) or, as it is in English, Helen. Helen is probably, though not certainly, derived from the Greek word helios, or "sun" so it may mean "ray of light" or "sunbeam." There is also a possible connection with the word hellen, which was an early word the Greeks used to describe themselves (even today there is an adjective "Hellenic" meaning Greek) but this is doubtful.
Undoubtedly the most famous ever Helen was the legendary Helen of Troy. The wife of a Greek king, Helen was carried off by a Trojan prince, Paris, which led to war between the two nations. Because of this story, the name tends to be associated with a fatal beauty.
In modern Greek the name is Eleni.
