DH's family are Welsh and I have close connections to Turkey so we've been mulling over Seren which is Welsh for star and apparently also Turkish (although I've never met a Turkish Seren and can't work out the meaning).
What do people think? How popular is it in Wales (we are in the South East)? Does anyone know it's Turkish meaning?
DDs 1&2 have top 100 names so is Seren too unusual in contrast?
If you put Seren into the search function on the right hand side of the page you will link to more than 500 threads, scroll down to baby names as a topic and you will see just how loved the name is. It doesn't mean that it is used though.
It is a great name and is currently very popular in Wales, as well as being a CBeebies character on Abadas, in that programme Seren is a very cute singing bat.
I'm welsh and live in North Wales- there are hardly any round here but think there are more towards the Wrexham area. (Friends daughter has four in her class) I actually don't like it at all, and even less so when it's not pronounced correctly (i.e. the welsh way). It does have a nice meaning behind it though, and plenty of people do like it- I just think of it as a horses name- sorry!
