In Greek mythology, Helice (/ˈhɛlɪsiː/ (modern Greek pronunciation: [eˈlici]; Ancient Greek: Ἑλίκη[heˈlikɛː]Helike) means "willow") was a name shared by several women:
Helice, nurse of the god Zeus during his infancy on Crete. Her name suggests that she was a "willow-nymph", just as there were oak-tree nymphs and ash-nymphs (Dryads and Meliae). It is likely that she is the same as Ide.
