Middle name for Seren

(28 Posts)

Can anyone suggest a good middle name for Seren? We have one dd already called Rowan Fritha, the surname is a single syllable. Dp and I are quite keen on having a less usual middle name, we like anglo saxon, scandanavian or welsh names particularly, or nature names, and I'd like to avoid biblical names. Our current ideas are:

Seren Freya
Seren Leaf
Seren Eirian

But I'm not really happy with any of them and don't think they scan right.

Any ideas?

I love seren leaf! Beautiful!
Seren Alice
Seren delila (spelled wrong sorry)
Seren Amber?

Leaf is ridiculous.

I have a Seren Elizabeth, maybe not to your taste.
Personally I'd avoid other 'object' type names like Leaf as you'd be calling her Star Leaf. Welsh names that go, what about
Seren Mari,
Seren Rhian
Seren Nia
Seren Anwen (bit too samey?)
My other favourite Welsh name which DS would have been if a girl Seren Ariana
Will keep thinking....

I quite accept that our current name ideas don't go well together, that's why I'm still looking for a good middle name.

While I'd never have chosen it myself, Seren Elizabeth sounds lovely. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong type of names. Alice works well too. I may have to expand my baby name horizons.

Seren Haf is lovely
Seren Freyja is a slight twist
Seren Cerys
Seren Arian (silver star is a lovely meaning) or use Arianna
Seren Aur (for gold star)
Seren Orianne
Seren Vega for a double whammy of star-ness

Seren Elizabeth does sound lovely. Elizabeth is a biblical name though wink

At risk of outing myself to anyone who knows me IRL my DD is Seren Eva

if you like Alice, how about the welsh version Alys - always thought that was a lovely name
I like Seren Elizabeth too

If you like the way that Seren Elizabeth sounds, how about:

Seren Aurelia
Seren Isolde
Seren Myfanwy
Seren Penelope
Seren Victoria

I thought Eirian was a boy's name?

Seren Editha (pronounced like Agatha, not Ibiza)
Seren Aurora (nice sky connection there)
Seren Lucille (nice light connection)
Seren Nina (nice weather connection)
Seren Lapis (nice nature connection)

Thank you! I love some of these suggestions. I am making a list to discuss with dp. Seren Eva's just become my favorite (is it OK to steal a name if you don't know the original owner in rl?)

I read a book with a female Eirian in it, but if it is normally a boy's name then I would like to be told. Does anyone know for sure?

pinkegg11 Thu 20-Sep-12 22:22:50

How about Astrid?

sleeplessinderbyshire Thu 20-Sep-12 22:26:04

Eirian is a girl's name, was on our short list for dd. feel free to steal my name - I love it very much (Eva is old family name from my side which is why we picked it)

redrubyshoes Thu 20-Sep-12 22:28:10

Seren Elowen
Seren Olwen
Seren Tove (Too-vay)
Seren Margaret
Serenwyl Rose
Serenwyl Grace

Ah Eirion is the boy version.

Hi, I'm welsh and Eirian is nearly always a boys name-although it can also be a girls name. I really wouldn't use it as a girls name as it just doesn't seem right! What about Seren Eira?

mybootsaremuddy Sat 22-Sep-12 20:12:38

I know a Seren Freja. Seren Eva sounds lovely as does Seren Alys.

WantAnOrange Sat 22-Sep-12 20:28:49

oh Seren is such a beautiful name!

cameli Sat 22-Sep-12 20:41:42
