Carenza was the name of an elderly woman of medieval France who wrote a poem with two younger female poets. The poem begins "Lady Carenza of the lovely, gracious body" ("Na Carenza al bel cors avinen"). Carenza represents the virgin. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alais,_Yselda,_and_Carenza

I almost prefer the medieval spelling "Carenza" to the less phonetical Kerensa.

Very pretty and unusual. I don't know why, but Kerensa makes me think of the sea, and the colour blue. It also reminds me of "cadenza", which is Italian for "cadence". Though I really don't like Kerry as a nickname for Kerensa. In my opinion, Rensa and Ren are much nicer.

Wonderful alternative to Karen (which is very common), and a bit more formal. I like it.

I had a student named Caerensa once. I'd never seen it or heard it before. Definitely an interesting name.

Very beautiful and I love it! My only concern is that it's unheard of where I live and I think others would think the child had a cre8ted name. I love the big classics so that bothers me a little.

I think this is a beautiful name and I think it most certainly should be used more often. :-)

I love this name. The meaning is nice, and it's the name of a short-lived alter-ego of the heroine in my novel. I'd definitely name a daughter Kerensa, because it's unique but legit.
