Love, like or hate?

KlingybunFistelvase Fri 18-Nov-16 10:53:40

Like!

Honeybee79 Fri 18-Nov-16 11:08:05

Like. A bit hard to shorten though perhaps.

Coey2016 Fri 18-Nov-16 11:13:38

Love it

puglife1 Fri 18-Nov-16 11:15:20

Love love love.

Howtocatchastar Fri 18-Nov-16 11:15:36

Love. I know a little phiney (pronounced feenee).

Ebbenmeowgi Fri 18-Nov-16 11:17:28

Love it. Can easily shorten to Sera or even Phi/Fi too. We're picking an unusual name for our LO but she can shorten it to at least 3 names when she's older if she's not fond of it.

A Philip Pullman fan per chance? smile

It's a bit of a mouthful? I don't mind it but don't love it.

I really don't like it for a child, it sounds forced to me.
A woman at playgroup recently introduced her newborn as Seraphina and it just sounded like such a mouthful.
I love phiney (feeney) as mentioned above though.
Perhaps one to grow into...?

I like it but think it's more suited to an adult, one to grow into as previously said.

DramaAlpaca Fri 18-Nov-16 12:06:15

Absolutely love it, it's beautiful.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 18-Nov-16 12:48:32

Like.

Sophronia Fri 18-Nov-16 13:45:56

It's very pretty.

NonFatTofuttiRiceDreamsicle Fri 18-Nov-16 13:49:53

It is very pretty, but I would decide it's too long a name for a child. That said, they would grow into it and possibly pick up cool nicknames as they grow up.

HelenaJustina Fri 18-Nov-16 13:59:25

Like it, know one with nn Seffy

If you're not 100% sold on Seraphina op, have you thought about Seraphine? I think I slightly prefer it as it's fewer syllables so less fussy maybe.

Seraphina is beautiful! Easy to say and it sounds so elegant and femine!

NavyandWhite Fri 18-Nov-16 14:47:41

Love

shaggedthruahedgebackwards Fri 18-Nov-16 14:59:13

It's beautiful

olderthanyouthink Fri 18-Nov-16 15:05:51

Love it (and seraphine)

MerryMarigold Fri 18-Nov-16 15:09:20

I don't like it. So there we go! Just sounds a bit too try-hard and also a bit girly for my personal taste. It's in the same vein as Isabella, but that's a bit more 'classic' (I don't particularly like that either). I'd put it with Arabella which I also dislike and Persephone. But they're prob both popular on here!

Shesinfashion Fri 18-Nov-16 15:10:51

Too try hard. It looks ok written down but doesn't sound pretty. So it's a no from me.

MerryMarigold Fri 18-Nov-16 15:11:46

It does make me think of someone with long, flicky hair who did History of Art and then very little else with her life. I can't imagine a female rugby player, a Maths professor or someone campaigning for human rights.

formerbabe Fri 18-Nov-16 15:11:51

Absolutely love!

HedgehogHedgehog Fri 18-Nov-16 15:14:41

beautiful!
