Comments for SÉVÉRINE:

I really like this name. It's melodious, to be poetic about it. It just sounds nice, and if I wasn't afraid that nearly everyone she ran into would butcher it beyond belief (since I'm American and most Americans don't speak French), I would name a daughter this. It has potential as a middle name, though.

That's beautiful! I love this name, it almost made me gasp! Kind of a sad meaning though. I would use it as an middle name maybe.

I like this name a lot. It's cute, original, and Sevie could be a nice nickname. I'm not sure it would age well though.

"Severine" (without accent marks) is a song by the Gothic/Electronica band Ego Likeness. I love the song, don't like the name.

The word "sévère" means "severe" or "strict" in French. I can't imagine this name would be that common in France, because of association with the word.

This is my daughter's middle name. When we were searching for names for her, I came across an alternate meaning for Severine, which is "of the Severn." This is perfect, as my daughter was born in Wales, very close to the River Severn. Such a beautiful and uncommon name. For those of you who balk at the "severe" designation, maybe you'll like the river connection.
