Comments for SERENA:

Serena (another way to pronounce it is "ser-rain-a") is a Latin name meaning serene, clear, quiet, calm, tranquil, peaceful. This is the way that we pronounce our daughters name and the meaning that helped us decide that Serena was a name we would consider for our child.

I like Serena, but my mother owns a Nissan Serena, the most ugly and unreliable car that was ever made, so it put me off the name a bit.

I really love the name Serena but I like the spelling Cyrena better.
-- Alphlyka  10/21/2006
I love this name, but I prefer the spelling Sarina. It just looks more feminine spelled that way. I would definitely consider using this name for my daughter. It's pretty, feminine, and I like the fact that it’s not very popular or overused.

Very beautiful and Serene. :)

I think this name is best pronounced SE - REE - NUH. I don't know why, but this name always reminds me of mermaids.

The name of a lead character on the hit teen drama show Gossip Girl; Serena is a reformed wild child known for her modelling and beautiful blonde locks.

Just thought I'd add that I ADORE this name. I kind of prefer it spelled Sarina, and it should be noted that girls might not like it's flashy, flowery feel and would want a more common name, but I think it's so pretty, regal and unique. And now that Isabella is the #2 name in America, Serena is one of the few names like that that isn't completely generic.

This name is incredibly beautiful. It has a nice meaning, and it reminds me of Sailor Moon, which was where I first heard the name. Serena is definitely among my favorite names.

I love this name, it has a cool sound.
-- GothicScarlett  2/28/2010
In Spanish speaking countries this is pronounced 'Serenna' My oldest daughter is called Serena, we use the English pronunciation most of the time. It is a pretty name and not heard that often.
-- Katinkabelle  7/12/2010
My name is Serena. I have always pronounced it the English way. People would always call me Selena or Sabrina. If I went by my nickname Rena they would call me Renee. I like the Italian pronunciation much better.
-- Guinnevere  7/26/2010
I don't really like or dislike this name; however, it really reminds me of the word "cerebral".
-- IYV  8/24/2010
Really pretty name. I knew a little girl named this, she was such a sweetheart. :)
-- Chrila96  2/4/2011
Can be pronounced one of three ways (maybe more): s[]-RAYN-n[], s[]-REN-n[], or s[]-REEN-[].
-- DaphneSusan  2/8/2011
Extremely beautiful, but seems a bit ditzy to me. I like all of the pronunciations, its hard for me to decide on a favourite. Sarina is an alright spelling, but it looks too similar to the ghastly and common Sabrina. Serina and Sarena may be better so that people don't mistake you for "another Sabrina".
-- DaphneSusan  2/8/2011
My name is Serena and I haven't liked it until recently because it means 'peaceful' and I'm not very peaceful at all, but I read a book called 'Serena' and the character wasn't at all peaceful, which I really liked because it made the name so versatile. I think it's a beautiful, romantic name without being overly girly and also strong (without being boyish), smart (without being nerdy) and very sophisticated (without being pompous). I love having an old Latin name and also just love the fact that my name is never really in or out of style. I just dislike that I have to spell it for people because there are so many alternative spellings! I wouldn't recommend alternative spellings because it's gorgeous and classy as it is. Overall, it's a great name!

How can everyone love this name but not like Serenity? In my opinion, Serenity is prettier and with better associations. Serena isn't bad, but I liked it a lot more before that horrid 'Gossip Girl' crap started plaguing the world.
-- Book_Reader22  3/24/2011
In my French class, the teacher pronounced it "Say-ray-na" (which I guess would be how you pronounce it in France).

I love this name! Serena is such a beautiful name! :)

Serena is the English dub name of Usagi Tsukino, in the Sailor Moon series.
-- kaptin_kawaii  12/31/2011
I love this name, but I wonder why no one's ever used "Serene" (pronounced the way you'd pronounce it in English) as a boy's name (or even gender neutral). Same meaning of course, just a male/unisex version for the name.
-- oshawott85  3/12/2013
I love this name. It is strong and sweet at the same time. I like the spelling Cerina as well, but I'm sure that people would mispronounce it as 'Karina'.

Serena was the name given to a mermaid by a missionary in Pirates of The Carribean: On Stranger Tides. I watched it last night and am now IN LOVE with the name!

Serena is the name of the female player character in the upcoming Pokemon games Pokemon X and Y. I think it's a bit Mary Sue-ish, but I like it (at least it sounds much better than her male counterpart's name, Calem).
-- Buneary  9/28/2013
Serena is beautiful and it's a name fit for a princess like I feel this is perfect for a little girl. One of my favorite books by Katie Contugno, had a character name Serena who went by Rena and I thought it was the most cutest thing and I can imagine a baby Serena and a teen Rena and the rest is optional, but I still love this name.
