Just wondering if helium emission lines have names like hydrogen lines. For instance the Balmer series is:

$$H_{\alpha}, H_{\beta}, H_{\gamma}, H_{\delta}...$$

The Lyman series is:

$$L_{\alpha}, L_{\beta}, L_{\gamma}, L_{\delta}...$$

Is there an equivalent naming convention for helium? If so, what are they called?
