Quoting FutureMRSmama:" The Name Galeanah pronounced 'g(a)-lea- nah'. origins Russian, Greek Russian,Greek Meanings of ... [snip!] ... light. Mom's name is Helen and so is sister so I love it. Instead of making a new post. Middle names for this as well TIA."


Oh no no no. Galina. Galeanah is not Russian.



It also has nothing to do with Helen. Russian forms of Helen are Helena, Elena, Yelena and Jelena.... all pronounced the same. Galina is a feminine form of Galenos, which is Greek.

Thank you, yeah the site said possibly greek, which I dont trust much now. Russian names I am just not fond of. Next time I will ask SO what is legit or not. He likes Anastasia, which will make me think of 50 shades, and MIL likes Nina. IDK. I think I am just sticking with what we agree on.

LOL, My DD is Helena Anastasia. :lol:




The name is Greek though. 90% of Russian names are based on Greek etymology.:)
