I think this is a very pretty name. I like what the last person who commented did by spelling their daughter's name Sarafina. She can also go by Sara, which is also very pretty. This is a beautiful, classy 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.

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.

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

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

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).

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

It was not Serafina; it was Seraphina!
