Origin of name
This beautiful female name appeared in our language from ancient Greece. Its value, as a rule, is interpreted as follows: sunlight, sunbeam, chosen, light.
In Greek mythology, the heroine named Helen was the most beautiful of all women.
This girl is distinguished by her kindness, in a society that she has got into not so long ago, and has not yet made friends, can show shyness. The situation changes when she gets into her closest circle of relatives or friends — in this society the girl becomes cheerful, agile, inventive for all sorts of fun.
In a peer company, she loves to show leadership qualities and often gives them all kinds of teams and assignments. However, there is no manifestation of authority in this — it acts so exclusively from internal mischief.
In her inner world, seriousness and creativity dominate. She likes to read prose and poetry, the latter often writes herself, in a notebook that hides from everyone, likes to listen to exciting and mystical stories at dusk.
Such traits will remain with Lena as an adult, although they can hide deep inside. Externally, it will become stricter and more serious, and only on themed holidays or in a big mood will be arranged a variety of jokes and fun.
