Instantiate class object with variable class name in nodejs

Is there a way in nodejs to instantiate class object with variable class name. I am trying the below snippet, it doesn't work though.

let className = "hello"; 
let object = new [className]();

EDITED I have multiple classes, out of those multiple classes I will get a subset(Array of String) as Input from another service and I have to call main function of those subset classes.

// Multiple classes = ["first", "second", ..............., "twenty"]; 

let subset_class_names = ["first", "three", "five"]; 

for (let aClass of subset_class_names) { 
    let object = new [aClass]();

You can try this using window

var className = 'hello'
var obj = new window[className];

Instead of iterating over class names, why not iterate over the classes itself?

class One {
    console.log("One constructed");

class Two {
    console.log("Two constructed");

const classes = [One, Two];

for(const aClass of classes)
  new aClass();
