Re: Name equivalent? #names

I don't believe there can be a single answer to what Hebrew/Yiddish name became Helen, but here is a selection from a Ketubah index for marriages dated between 1854 and 1946, here in Australia and where the "english" name of the bride was Helen or Helene:
Hela (האלע), Leah (לאה), Henle(twice) (הינלא), Hinda (הינדא), Chaya (חיה)

I hope this helps,
