Personal experiences with the name Ellena

It's my name and i've never heard about anyone else with it.

My name is Ellena. I am 30 years old and I've always liked my name except that 90% cant spell or pronounce it properly. Not that hard, it's just Ellen with an 'a' at the end. It most commonly gets mispronounced as "Ee-lee-nah" and "Eh-lay-na" . Mine is pronounced
"Elle-len-uh" I also get a lot of compliments on my name which is always nice .

I am also named Ellena, pronounced Ellen-a or Hellena without the h. It is a family name for me. The name was originally Roman but then became popular in Scandinavia. I absolutely love my name. Whenever someone says Ellena is about to arrive no one will ever ask which Ellena, that is after they learn how to pronounce it!
