How many Serena's do you know?

What do you think when you hear the name Serena? Tennis player?

I love the name Serena, and dont think its overly popular right now.

i always look here when deciding on names. I dont want my dc to be one of 5 with the same name in a class lol.

I think of my lovely best friend from school. It's a lovely name, and not very common, even with Serena Williams.

Beautiful name, and I don't know any round here. Makes me think of a swan.

I think of my very nice neighbour down the road. She's the only Serena I know, and she is a bit older than me - maybe 40s? But will Serena Williams have changed all that?

Where do you see names outside the top 100?

My sis is a Serena - she´s 19. Love it, but I´m biased.

Dropped a notch only in the last decade, but still a popular girl name, see popularity of name Serena

I love it because of its (obvious) meaning. It's a beautiful name.

I know a baby and a 50 year old

I think Serena is a beautiful name. Knew a girl at school when I was little, but don't know any now. Don't know if it actually means "Serene" but that's what it makes me think of. I think it is original and timeless and I can't think of any horrid nicknames or shortenings that could be made from it grin

My niece's name is Serena. Beautiful name.

Besides Misdee's Serena I know another one (in SW London) exactly the same age.

HonoriaGlossop Fri 18-Jul-08 20:46:41

I don't know any. I think it's really lovely.

actually i know a Serena and she is usually called Seri.
Its popular in the teenage/ early 20's age group. my eldest knows a serena, and also selina, sabrina and karina.I seem to remember when i was pregnant with her all the 'ina' names were ' in'
