So my husband and I are strongly considering using the name [name]Helena[/name] but can’t decide on the pronunciation. Our last name is [name]Nguyen[/name] pronounced like [name]Win[/name].
I thought the softer pronunciation of heh-leh-na sounded the best with our soft sounding last name but I’m worried it flows too well and just runs together.
The other pronunciation we like is Heh-[name]LANE[/name]-uh but I am not quite as fond of the harsh “lane” sound in it, but I still love it.
So what do you guys think flows better with our last name?
