I want to know the meaning and history of the Finnish name Helinä.
Helinä is a popular variation of Helena. It has the same origin as English Helen = Greek Helene, feminine of Helenos "the bright one, shining one".
Finnish writer Santeri Ivalo used Helinä in his historical novel "Juho Vesainen" 1894.
Helinä also means tinkle.
