Not sure if it's too fussy/unusual, opinions?smile

I like it, not heard it before

Don't like sorry

character who is very beautiful from philip pullman's trilogy.

Dozer Sat 22-Apr-17 11:36:09

But yes I think it's fussy and might not suit some DDs.

Love it.

I love Seraphina.

I'm not normally one for overly "frilly" or girly names, but I have a couple of exceptions and this is one of them. I think Sera is an adorable nickname.

I really like it, also not usually a fan of 'frilly' names but I think it sounds pretty strong.

Carmenlo Sat 22-Apr-17 12:34:33

Thanks.. Was going to have it as a middle name but it's growing on me as a first name! smile

GissASquizz Sat 22-Apr-17 12:35:44

I like it. Lots of nick name potential.

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Sat 22-Apr-17 12:45:53

Love it! Especially as a first name (I feel like it's kind of "wasted" as a middle name... Not sure if that makes sense, btw).

KingsCross88 Sat 22-Apr-17 14:17:40

I like it. And if she wants something less frilly, she can just call herself Sera (or Sarah).

Reow Sat 22-Apr-17 14:22:13

Love it

Or Phi.

It's a bit too flouncy and frilly for me but I think I'd like it if I met one. Though I think it would be sweet for a v little girl but a bit much for an adult iykwim.

This from wikipedia, just for fun:

Tradition places seraphim in the highest rank in the Christian angelic hierarchy and in the fifth rank of ten in the Jewish angelic hierarchy. A seminal passage in the Book of Isaiah (Isaiah 6:1-8) used the term to describe six-winged beings that fly around the Throne of God crying "holy, holy, holy".

It's clearly quite a name!

It sounds like something that they'd name a contraceptive pill.
Sera on the other hand I think is really lovely

Comealongpond89 Sat 22-Apr-17 15:57:42

Love it!

I have to imagine I can call a name loudly across a park and not feel like a wally. I just can't imagine calling 'Seraphina', sorry.

crazymissdaisy Sat 22-Apr-17 16:00:28

Love it, Seraphina Pekkala, is that right? Lovely associations and a nice sound, you could also shorten it in lots of ways ( for calling across the park purposes): Sera; Fee; Feena.....

FeedTheSharkAndItWIllBite Sat 22-Apr-17 16:03:21

Sleep Why not? It's alovely name!

BackforGood Sat 22-Apr-17 16:14:40

Not to my personal taste. I feel a bit like sleepfreezone, just sounds a bit pretentious for my taste, although there is nothing wrong with it as a name, if that's the sort of name you like.

NoncommittalToSparkleMotion Sat 22-Apr-17 16:19:30

I love it. I had a great aunt with this name, but spelled Serafina (Old Italian way.) We called her Zia Fee. She was beautiful smile

LobsterQuadrille Sat 22-Apr-17 16:25:46

Love it. I was friends with a Seraphina when I lived overseas. When she told me she was Charlie Watts's daughter it meant nothing to me as I had never heard of him.
