Btw, using the "Alting" from your screenshot, I found another, somewhat less older old source:
Vaderlandsche historie. Deel 1 - Jan Wagenaar, 1749
And the next is nice:
fem. proper name, from Fr. Hélène, from L. Helena, from Gk. Helene, fem. proper name, probably fem. of helenos "the bright one."
"New (and) bright" would be something like "neos helenos" in Greek (?).
