(and by "people" I mean Tara and Lori)
How do you pronounce Helena?
So I thought to myself, "Heck, why not write a post about it?"
(yeah, I'm kind of running short on ideas this week.)
(...and I'm copying some of this straight from my FAQ page. Because I'm lazy like that.)
Here is the official answer:
There is actually an accent over the second "e" to make it say "A".
No, I'm not making that up! It's on my birth certificate. My mom was really feeling her french heritage that year.
Here, I'll put it in: Heléna. That's my real name.
Which? Awesome way to make your kids hate each other. My sisters were jealous of my accent, and I probably didn't help when I told them that it was because "mom and dad just love me more.'
Yup. I was such a nice kid. Right Amber? Chantel?
You can't still be mad.
I'm linking this to my sister's party, Small Treasures Tuesday. Because having me for an older sister is a treasure.
