English form of the Greek name Helene, coming from the Greek word helene “torch” or “corposant”, or possibly related to selene “moon”. In Greek mythology, Helen was the daughter of Zeus and Leda, whose kidnapping by Paris was the cause of the Trojan War. The name was also borne by the 4th-century Saint Helena, mother of the Roman emperor Constantine, who supposedly found the True Cross during a trip to Jerusalem. The name was originally used among early Christians in honor of the saint, as opposed to the classical character. In England, it was commonly spelled Ellen during the Middle Ages, and the spelling Helen was not regularly used until after the Renaissance. A famous bearer was Helen Keller (1880-1968), an American author and lecturer who was both blind and deaf. — Origin English, Latin: Light; Variant of Helena.

In Greek mythology, Helen of Troy was the daughter of Zeus and wife of Menelaus, King of Sparta, and considered to be the most beautiful woman in the world.
