We've pretty much decided on this as a girls name, can anyone think of any dodgy connotations for it? hmm

Really really like it, can't think of any bad nicknames...! But hey I could be wrong x

Can't think of any negatives. Is quite nicknameable, but for me that would be a plus.

I really like this, and would shortlist if we go for DC3. Probably Sera for short.

It's lovely, it's the name of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner dd2 but don't think that's particular negative.

I love this. Use the whole name, it's so lovely.

I love it- This is my girls name if I ever have another DD!

I'd spell it Seraphine and use Seffi or Fi as a nickname.

Semolina? Bit of a stretch, mind you, so you might be safe!

I love it but do a bit more research. I couldn't have it due to our surnamesad.

My name is not very common, and after doing some research I now know why. My parents didn't have access to the internet all those years ago and just thought it was a nice name.

I'm not saying that it does have any dodgy connotations BTW.

I prefer Serafima which is an ancient Slavic name of Greek origin (short form: Fima)... Never heard of Seraphina, but sounds ok.

not keen. bit ecclesiastical and despite the fact that it will start out being different, it will be Sara eventually. I'd bet.

CoteDAzur Tue 30-Nov-10 17:49:43

I like it.

My 6 year old is Seraphina Elizabeth, so obviously I love the name. She is often called Sephy.

Lonnie Tue 30-Nov-10 23:50:00

I love it love it it was on our shortlist for dd3 but she didnt "feel" like a Seraphina when she was born I sthink think it is a beautiful name

duchesse Tue 30-Nov-10 23:54:06

My niece is one. I think it's lovely.

duchesse Tue 30-Nov-10 23:54:24

My Dsis and her Dh call her Saphy.

Few, glad that name got a good response, I was dreading so awful nickname linked to it that I was unaware of.

Seraphina it is smile
