The Incredibles (2004)

Question: Has anyone figured out the significance of Helen's name? Each of the Pars have a name that relate to their powers but I can't think of Helen's connection. Bob: BoB, or Best of the Best; Violet: ultraviolet rays, outside the visible spectrum; Dash (as in running around); Jack-Jack: Jack of all Trades (his multiple powers); possibly also Syndrome; his "syndrome" is hero worship/envy.

Chosen answer: There is no connection. And let's be honest here, Bob supposedly meaning "Best of the best" is so hopelessly tenuous as to be meaningless as any sort of correlation to his abilities. While the three children, yes, do have names that correspond to their powers in some way, their parents do not.
