In my experience, BtN is the best of the websites on the subject of etymology (although through recommendations, I've found some other excellent ones, mostly specialized ones, e.g. on medieval names). It has its inaccuracies like anything else, of course - I don't claim that it is flawless. If I am particularly concerned with an accurate etymology, my first stop would be the Oxford Names Companion, which is probably the best thing out there. It, like BtN, derives Soren from Severinus. Actually it only lists Sören:
Sören: Scandinavian (Danish) form of Severinus.
