Ok…I voted for [name]Helen[/name] [name]Irene[/name] cause I really like [name]Helen[/name], strong name with great associations for me & in general ([name]Helen[/name] of [name]Troy[/name]), but I don’t think it flows well with [name]Irene[/name] as a mn.
[name]Irene[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] sounds better together, but I don’t like [name]Irene[/name] nearly as much. Now I just think of the hurricane.

I much prefer [name]Irene[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]. [name]Irene[/name] was my late Grandma’s name and she was a beautiful lady… I always think beauty when I hear the name [name]Irene[/name]:slight_smile:

Perhaps I should add [name]Helen[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] to the mix. Thoughts?

Need more votes to help break the tie!

Another granddaughter of an [name]Irene[/name] here. I really like it, but have always struggled with what to pair it with. [name]Irene[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] flows nicely.

[name]Helen[/name] is lovely as a full name but what makes it awesome is the possibility of [name]Nell[/name] as a nickname! [name]Helen[/name] doesn’t work with [name]Irene[/name] as a middle name though.

I love [name]Helen[/name], it was my grandmother’s name. I prefer [name]Irena[/name]/[name]Irina[/name] to [name]Irene[/name] though. [name]Helen[/name] [name]Irina[/name] is better, I think, than [name]Helen[/name] [name]Irene[/name]. [name]Helen[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] is okay. My favourite [name]Helen[/name] combos are [name]Helen[/name] [name]Cecily[/name] or [name]Helen[/name] [name]Cybele[/name].
