I have two children Charlie and Tilly, and TTC baby number 3.
After two miscarriages in the last 7 months, I want to choose a name with a special meaning. I went to the GP, and she said the most beautiful and reassuring words; That there was a little star waiting for me to choose them to be my baby. So with these words I wanted the baby to mean star.
We are OK for boys names, but we struggle for girls names.
My name also means star so I thought this would also be a lovely connection
My and my husband like the name Seren.

Do you like it with my other children's names?
Does it matter if they don't go well together?

I think Seren is lovely

The only ones I can think of are Stella and Gaia, which both go with your other children's names I think.

Thinking of Stella, what about Estellle/Estella or other variants?

I prefer Stella. Luna is also nice (means moon).
Congrats and all the best for your pregnancy. star

Seren is lovely.

Suraya - but I don't think it goes with your other DC's names
Vega - means falling star in Arabic

Celeste could also work but I think Stella works best with your daughters's names.

I love Seren and Stella.
Also in keeping with the celestial theme, I think Sunny would go well with your other dc's names. Or, I know of a little Spanish girl named Sol - although here people might think of the lager smile it's very pretty though IMO.

I used to know someone named Astra but you might be put off by the car association. Seren is lovely smile

AlfAlf Sat 18-Jul-15 13:10:53

I know a little girl called Steli through my work; I don't know what it means though?

Lyra, a constellation rather than a star?

I think it sounds like Liar, personally, but I know people who love it.

Soleil is lovely.

Steren (Cornish version of Seren)
Danica (means "morning star")
Sitara (means "star" in Hindi)
Tara (means "star" in Sanskrit)

OnlyLovers Sat 18-Jul-15 13:25:07

How do you say Seren/Steren? They look lovely written down but I don't know how they sound.

I love Astrid.

Also Sitara and Lyra. And Asta and Hesper.

Venus (morning star, as well as a planet)

Cassiopeia, Andromeda, Carina, Callisto (all constellations)

Maristela 'star of the sea' (ie the Virgin Mary, but Maris is used as a girl's name, as well.)

Nova (bright new star)

Bellatrix (a star in Orion constellation; means female warrior)

Seren is 'seh-ren' and Steren 'steh-ren'

CakeRattleandRoll Sat 18-Jul-15 17:12:53

Seren is lovely. It's a bit different from your other DC, but I really don't think that is an issue. The one thing all 3 names have in common is that you love them, and that is all that matters.

OnlyLovers Sat 18-Jul-15 17:52:44

Thanks, Sophronia.

My parents called our DD "little star" when she was but a flickering pixel. We used Seren in her name. My mum cried. smile

villainousbroodmare Sat 18-Jul-15 18:48:20

Seren is an utterly gorgeous name. I think it does sound a bit different from Charlie and Tilly but sure, so what?

Lucaslovesfelicity Sat 18-Jul-15 20:22:02

Seren is perfect :-) Also really love a Estelle

susurration Sat 18-Jul-15 20:51:52

Hester is greek for Star.

Edna1969 Sat 18-Jul-15 20:56:48

Many congratulations :-)

Callista would be my favourite.

I know a lovely Seren so predisposed to like this name but know she always gets called Sarah by mistake which is v.v. annoying.

ShadowFire Sat 18-Jul-15 21:09:26

Seren is lovely.

I like Stella but the Stella Artois connection puts me off it.

magentastardust Sat 18-Jul-15 21:14:53

Estrella is spanish for Star, I love Seren and also like Celeste.
