I know people with 2 different pronunciations - HELL-in-uh and hel-AY-nuh. I prefer the first of those personally

I think I pronounce it in different ways. Helena Bonham Carter is HELL-eh-nuh. But in the name St. Helena, it's Huh-LAY-nuh. If I just saw it on its own with no context (or without someone saying it some other way to me), I'd probably say Huh-LAY-nuh, too.

Usually Hell-A-Nuh if I don't know they pronounce it a different way. I have come across Hell-Ay-Nuhs before though.

The classic English way - as in Helena Bonham Carter - would be the second, Hell-A-Nuh. However, He-Lean-A, and even Hell-Ay-Nuh are more exotic options.

just kidding. I've actually had no occasion to say it out loud. I've always silently read it hell a nuh. Hopefully I will know the correct pronunciation before I need to verbally use the word. That would be convenient.
