I love this name, it has a great meaning too.

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.

This name is so old-ladyish.

I was going to name my first born daughter Kerensa Colleen but sadly, I had two boys and never got to use the name. But I worked with a man whose granddaughter was named Kerensa. Her nickname would have been Kere (Cara).

Nice.

Beautiful name, can't understand why it is not used more often. I also like the alternative spelling 'Kerenza'.

Firstly I would like to say that my very dearest friend is named Kerensa, her nickname

is Keri, & online she spells her name, "Kere".

I've wanted to change my name my entire life. My new name (somewhat long) is going to

include Kerensah OR Kayrenzah for one of my middle names.

The other point I wanted to make was, it showed the pronunciation as, Pronounced

kə-REN-zə. I should be well-versed & know what the upside-down "e" means, alas, I

do not. My pronunciation is; (pn; kuh-REN-suh), the capital letters are the dominant

syllable.

Thank you & a Belated Happy New Year to you All :)
