Not for me, love Serenity though

If I was a detective I'd be called Serendipity Brown (but I'd use my middle name Jane for dealing with the norms).
I think it's a great name, as long as there is a more ordinary middle name in case of necessity and teenage conforming. I like it much better than Serenity, a lot more go to it, in my mind. But if you feel a bit sheepish about it then it might not be the best name for your family

I like Serendipity, and the meaning of it.

Not sure if I'd be brave enough to go for it myself though!

Not a name that I like because I think it sounds quite pretentious. Names I like better are Serena or Seren. Or, work with the meaning of the name and find alternative from there (if it's alternatives that you want, of course!)

Ridiculous unless it's for a cartoon princess.

I don't like Serendipity, but Serena is close in sound and very pretty.

I'd pronounce it Ser-in

KumquatMae Tue 05-Feb-13 21:13:38

I love Seren too. Never sure how to pronounce it though. Se-REN, Serun? And even though I know dippy means stupid I still think it's quite a cute nickname..
Serenity?

DH suggested Serendipity for DC1 who was a bit of a 'surprise' - everyone we mentioned it too said Dippy as a nn. That was enough to turn me off, but the name has a lovely sentiment

It doesn't do it for me, sorry.

And although I'd never say this to one if I met one in RL, I would assume it was an accidental conception.

She would get called dippy where I come from

DawnOfTheDee Tue 05-Feb-13 21:06:09

No, it's a bit 'much' for me I think. What about Seren?

flossy101 Tue 05-Feb-13 21:03:03

Like it, wouldn't be brave enough myself though.

perplexedpirate Tue 05-Feb-13 21:02:57

No. I think it's the 'dip' bit that makes it sound just silly.
Seren and Ren are both nice though.

Seminyak Tue 05-Feb-13 20:59:56

There was someone in neighbours ages ago called Serendipity, nn Ren. Love Ren! Serendipity is a nice notion as well smile

Having said that I wouldn't be brave enough to name my child Serendipity. I do like the word though!
