Any thoughts about the name serenity still struggling to get a girl's

I love it, but I wouldn't be brave enough to use it. Any daughter of mine is unlikely to be serene blush

Much prefer Serena, which is a jolly nice name IMHO.

redgoat Mon 25-May-15 18:21:27

What Mutton said. I think if I was to call my daughter that, I'd be asking for her to be a minx. smile

Makes me think of Firefly. Future DD2 will be Seren, we are not brave enough to use Serenity!!

Sounds like a sanitary towel. Serena is nicer.

Don't like it, it sounds silly. Serena is an actual name with a similar sound, would go for that.

MitziKinsky Mon 25-May-15 18:39:55

No, and no.

I don't like long names. And no child of mine would ever be serene.

But it's not my child, and you should call your DD what you like. smile

No, it sounds a bit made up and silly, and a bit frou-frou along Chardonnay lines.


all lovely, and proper traditional names. I'd go for one of those.

No. It's like Liberty. Not good. And tempting faith way too much.

Eastpoint Mon 25-May-15 19:12:16

Serena sounds much better to me

FoamyOne Mon 25-May-15 19:12:52

I can just imagine shouting "Please stop it, Serenity" when she's rolling around the floor of Sainsburys, mid-tantrum...

Serena is lovely smile.

Another vote for Serena. I love that name, but I tend to feel Serenity is a descriptive word, not a name. (I know Grace is too, but it sounds like a name to me iyswim.)

SoupDragon Mon 25-May-15 19:18:50

Seren and Serena are far better. Serenity is asking for trouble, which is how I feel about all virtue names TBH.

Lolimax Mon 25-May-15 19:22:33

Seren is Welsh for star and a very popular name here.

Sophronia Mon 25-May-15 22:16:36

Don't like it, it sounds a bit tacky to be honest. Serena or Seren are much better.

ChampagneShowers Mon 25-May-15 22:18:08

What about Serendipity?

Jemimapuddlemuck Mon 25-May-15 22:24:25

It's pretty but I can just imagine it sounding horribly ironic mid-tantrum!

TheCowThatLaughs Mon 25-May-15 22:26:21

Don't like serenity but I do like serena

Allthatnonsense Mon 25-May-15 22:29:15

It's okay.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Mon 25-May-15 22:57:39

I like it as far as liking a name goes and I don't think it would bring a child any issues. Kids are accepting to all names now aren't they,
I wouldn't have it though as we've already got Nia chosen.
So if you like it go for it. Before someone else has a baby and names her Serenity, that happened to friend she was umming and Arring about a specific name. She wasn't brave enough to use it, anyway her cousin had a baby. Year later and used the name she was going to use. My friend was gutted but couldn't say anything.

I like it. great movie.

Koalafications Mon 25-May-15 23:01:06

I like it as a word, but not as a name.
