It was not Serafina; it was Seraphina!

I have heard a pronunciation of this name as seer-a-feen-a.

Such a delicate, unique name. It rolls off the tongue so nicely. However, I also like how you can nickname her "Sera" (which means "evening" in Italian) or Fina.

I love this name, but would rather spell it Sarafina (I don't know if this is a separate name entirely, because I had to add it to this site).

Also the Portuguese form of Seraphina. [noted -ed]

I really just don't like this name. When I see it or hear it, it doesn't conjure up good images.

Serafina Tortelli was the eldest daughter of Carla on the American television series "Cheers".

Like the way it sounds and I prefer this spelling.

Serafina is a nice and rare name so you won't meet a lot of Serafinas so that's a good thing, but I've never really been too fond of this name.

We named our daughter Sarafina, preferring this spelling so she can shorten it to Sara, instead of Sera, which made me think of "Que Sera, Sera." This website says Sarafina is Swahili for "bright star," which is also nice, though entymologically unrelated to Seraphina, but we prefer the related meaning to the Seraphim. There were two movies using this name: "Seraphine" a French film, and "Sarafina" the South African movie with Whooopi Goldberg. Both characters were brave, strong and beautiful.
