Comments for SERENITY:

I think it's a pretty name, I wish it was mine.

This name is so beautiful. I love it.
-- Rachelgirl1989  12/7/2005
I think it's beautiful. Ever since I first heard it about a year ago I loved it.

My almost-2-month-old niece was named Serenity Dawn. Which all together means 'peaceful sunset'. I absolutely loathe this name. I was trying to convince my sister against using it, but she's very stubborn. So now my little niece will have to put up with her awful name, as I did mine.

Serenity Dawn would mean calm sunrise *not* peaceful sunset. Serenity is a cute name, perhaps for a middle name.

Cute for a child, not an adult. I would hate to have this name, and I pity anyone (of any age) who actually does.
-- Anonymous User  8/8/2006
A common brand name of adult diapers.

I personally don't like it, but you could always use a nickname for it such as Wren or Seri.
-- Anonymous User  8/26/2006
It's an awesome name, it's on my list of names for girls if I have one. But I prefer it spelled Serienity.
-- Holdmecloser2u13  10/5/2006
I LOVE this name and I plan on naming a future child this with another calm name as a middle name.
-- love_names  10/9/2006
I like the sound of this name. The nickname Wren/Renny is cute for this name.

Try thinking of an important person. A senator. Named Serenity Smith. And try not to simultaneously snort derisively and cry.
-- Anonymous User  11/22/2006
I can refrain from that. Very easily.

The condescension in these comments baffles me. I don't understand the difficulty of imagining an adult with this name. It's not terrible at all! Is the like-sounding (and root-sharing) Serena looked at in a similar fashion? Because that has been used for ages! What about Felicity? Heck, throw Verity in too! And Charity! None of these are terrible, and all fit little girls and adults. (Although I agree that Chastity is awful, but that has nothing to do with how it sounds.)

Brilliant movie, but I don't like it as a name.
-- Druid  1/16/2007
I love the name! I have planned on naming my child this in the future! I do not think this name is childish.
-- star_girl  4/27/2007
I think it might come from the word 'serene', correct me if I'm wrong though. It is a beautiful name!
-- rhiannon4  10/5/2007
I think this name sounds very pretty, the meaning is nice too.
-- honeypower  10/14/2007
Ugh, I really dislike this name. It's so tacky and will sound horrible on a grown woman. Just because something's cute on a little girl doesn't mean it'll fit her as she ages!
-- Skittsie13  12/8/2007
It's a hopelessly corny name, and it actually sounds a bit like a Harlequin novel character. I don't really like any of these names ending in -ity, like Charity, Felicity, and, the horror of all horrors, Chastity. This is certainly the best one out of those, but it's still very corny.

Serenity is considered a "virtue" name by Christians.
-- sarahj  6/1/2008
It's pretty, but it looks like a name suited to a stripper.
-- bananarama  9/13/2008
When I hear this name it reminds me of Neo-Queen Serenity off of Sailor Moon.
-- Dianna475  12/4/2008
It's pretty, but then again there is the adult diaper association.
-- number1212  12/28/2008
This name makes me think of adult diapers. What if this girl develops a psychotic, larger-than-life personality? And just imagine a public official with this name!
-- gaelruadh19  1/28/2009
I fell in love with this name after watching the movie Serenity. I wouldn't name my daughter this, but maybe a character in a story instead.

(And I didn't know it was a brand of adult diapers until now. I'll just ignore that assocation. XD)
-- CanadianChibi  3/16/2009
I like the name. The only problem is that "sere" means something like to shit in Croatian.
-- Anonymous User  5/8/2009
This is the name of the Firefly class Spaceship in Joss Whedon's Firefly Series and the movie Serenity.
-- Anonymous User  6/11/2009
Lame.
-- Aureliano  4/1/2010
The meaning is nice, but this is a name a little girl would give to their toy pony.
-- Anonymous User  4/4/2010
It's actually pretty (and I don't like most word names) but it's really hard to picture on an adult. Will not age well at all.
-- Chrila96  9/21/2010
All I can think of when I hear this name is the movie Serenity, and River Tam beating everyone up. Not a very good association, especially for a name with a meaning like Serenity.
-- Anonymous User  5/1/2011
I would understand a hardcore Firefly/Joss Whedon fan naming their daughter this, but I wouldn't personally name my child this. But because of Firefly, I like this name (for a character or such), especially with the nickname "Ren".
-- Dawson  5/29/2011
I am sorry, but I cannot imagine this name on an actual person. Unlike other word names, such as Prudence, Temperence, or Verity, this name does not seem to have the "established for centuries" bearing behind it. This was once the name of one of my cats, but again, I cannot imagine it on a human. It seems kind of, well, cheesy.
-- alicia_renee  6/1/2011
As far as virtue names go, this one isn't too bad. It's quite pretty and feminine, and personally I don't think it would only fit well on a little girl. My main problem with it is its association with that one Seinfeld episode... I keep hearing the characters screaming, "Serenity now!" in my mind when I hear this name.
-- Anonymous User  8/13/2011
It's got a pretty sound, yes. But let's be honest: it's incredibly tacky, and what's the chance the girl will actually fit her name? How can you be sure she'll be calm and quiet and, well, serene? I go to school with a girl named Serenity, and she's a loud-mouth who often has to be sent out of the classroom. Even worse are the alternate spellings: Sereintiy, Serranitie, Sarynitee. You may as well call her Chasstedie (Chastity) or Philesitee (Felicity).

Princess Serenity/Neo-Queen Serenity of Sailor Moon!

Also, I really like this name... It reminds me of peaceful water fountains, or something...
-- kaptin_kawaii  12/31/2011
"Serenity now!"
-- Anonymous User  5/26/2012
Honestly this name is absolutely beautiful. It means so much to me on so many levels. Perhaps because it makes me think of the moon (which is one of my very favourite things in life). And also somewhat because it makes me think of someone very important to me. I very much like its meaning, its appearance, and its sound. When working in tandem with solemnity there is quite a beautiful combination (which is also reminiscent of what I have already mentioned). Honestly, I've no idea why so many people seem to bash this name. Calling it tacky, lame, unfitting of adulthood, fitting of a stripper even (don't ask me), corny, unnatural, not right sounding, unfitting of public officials, fitting of a girl's toy pony, unfitting of aged individuals, and some people have even stated that they despise the name altogether. Why would anyone be so horrendously picky about it. Is it not a good thing to be able to just be happy about such a name, and not get frustrated over it? Is being so picky not an obstacle to happiness, overall? Think of the people who carry this name, and how they might feel about such terribly judgmental reactions. Why not let them enjoy the meaning of their name, and perhaps even, allow them to strive toward adhering to it. If your reactions toward this name are so absurdly volatile, I would advise you to have a bit more Serenity yourself... I agree with what erb816 had to say. Does it truly matter, whether or not someone fills the meaning of their name when growing up? If so, there are plenty of other names which should also never be chosen because "you don't know that they will grow up to be that way." That shouldn't matter at all. And if anything, names are often analogous with self-fulfilling prophecies in that they certainly do contribute to influencing one's personality. But that aside, there should be nothing wrong with naming someone after words with meanings such as this. I honestly wish that the people launching such objections to it would just relax a bit. Going along with what I said before about having a bit more Serenity themselves. I wrote this merely in full expression of my ideas, and meant not to offend anyone. If I have done so, I sincerely apologize.
-- DoctorCondensate  2/26/2013
Sure, that precious little baby girl might look so serene when you hold her in your arms for the first time, but just you wait until she reaches the terrible twos... I can hardly even picture this name on a preschooler, let alone an adult.
-- mrose19  6/30/2013
Such anger and venom on here towards this (and other) names is shocking.
This is my daughter's name and it is beautiful. Despite not being 2 years old yet she tries her best to pronounce her own name as do all the other children in her nursery, although the majority seem to go with Enity! We shorten it to Ren. The utter rubbish spouted by an earlier poster about it not being a name for an adult is a load of tosh, I pity you and the world you live in.
Everyone who has met my daughter loves the name. Lighten up people.
-- thingy003  9/9/2013
I don't know why, but when I saw this name and read it in my head, I fell in love. I, personally, think it sounds so beautiful, like the name of a sea or of an elegant ship braving the ocean. I might not use it as a first name, but definitely as a middle name. Or if I did use it as a first name, I would probably give her a nickname such as Serena.

MY name is Serenity. These comments have me cracking up actually because your responses are so ignorant. It's a "stripper name", "diapers", "grown women can't use that name". I'm 23 years old and have a respected and amazing job working overseas. I got my degree in 2 years and I'm currently working on my masters. To put myself through college I worked at a LIBRARY, and taught part time. No naked dancing, lol. So many kids/adults with basic names like ASHLEY, BRITTNEY, AND TIFFANY, RENEE, (the list goes on) comment on how lovely my name is. And you know what? I love my name, it's one of the things that makes me unique along with all the other parts of myself. So ladies and gentlemen if you name your child Serenity there is no guarantee that she will be a success but I sure as hell am and everyone who meets me never forgets my name. Serenity--a lovely emotion & name as well.

This name is beautiful! I will definitely be naming my daughter this. It is unique and lovely. It looks nice when written, sounds nice when spoken and has a beautiful meaning.
I think people bag out names like this because they would rather play it safe and stick to names that thousands of other people have. They are afraid. Especially to be different from the crowd. People who can't imagine a politician, public servant or even "adult" with this name, most likely have insecurities of their own. It is more important to see people for who they are than merely judging them by their name according to your personal taste. You don't have to love this name to appreciate it.
Serenity... What a beautiful name.
-- Crysmichelle  4/15/2014
I am absolutely in love with this name. I named my daughter Serenity. I wanted a name that conveyed my philosophy that happiness, love and Serenity are the most important virtues in life. It's not money or anything that takes away from your true happiness. Making decisions based on values that are meaningful and fulfilling. For my most precious baby, I named her Serenity :)
-- NSN  6/19/2014
I think it's a pretty name, but have a really hard time not thinking "Serenity Now!" every time I read it. I'm not even a big Seinfeld fan, I've just heard it quoted often. See a clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow_9MglZrhs Just because of that I was thinking the name Serene might be a good alternative.
