A not so common girls name, most widespread in Nordic and Germanic countries. Derives from Old Norse "heilagr" meaning "holy, blessed".

The name has become somewhat a cliché, regarded by some with to many negative connotations. Partly becouse of the famous '70s and '80s porn star Helga Sveen, and the popularity of the name during Hitler's nazi-Germany.

A popular myth suggests the name is synonymous with an unattractive and/or unfeminine woman. Take a trip to Norway or Iceland, and you'll be proven wrong;-)

Of German lineage, Helga means strong, vibrant and determined. While historically "Helgas" have been large and bustly, those named Helga still living tend to be fun, attractive, punctual, fit and very smart.

A beautiful and extraordinary girl. Very vibrant and fun. She's a kind of girl that comes off to people as mean and a bitch but is actually very nice. She tries to be good but people keep getting on her nerves. She's a jealous person but hardly shows it. She can dance although she prefers singing. She has a beautiful smile and loves it when people compliment it. She's seen as a player but is actually very faithful. She is a humanitarian. She doesn't really like her friends because she thinks their fake. A Helga can hardly ever come by so when you find one better hold her close because she's the best friend, girlfriend you could ever ask for. If you ever want to be weird she'll always be weird with you
Who's that beauty? Oh that's my friend Helga
