Personal Impression
My mom chose to spell it Korensa! Growing up I didn't use my real name until junior year of high school. But now, I ABSOLUTELY love my name. It's weird that the one girl said her nickname was Kenzi though because that was mine and I never understood how or why she got it though. Her answer was the kids pronounced it like Kenzie. I don't know how but whatever, it stuck. The spelling- I've only found 2 other people have the same.

I always feel very special to bear the name Kerensa. Frankly speaking I have never met anyone with the same name in real life and it makes me feel bad at times. Most of my friends call me "Kay","Kenzy","kk" or "Kere". It's not too hard to pronounce the name, even my granny pronounces it perfectly. I love my name.

My name is Kerensa but spelled Kernsa. It’s such a beautiful name.

My name is Kerensa and my mom also got it from the Victoria Holt novel. I've always loved my name. I have three nicknames that only certain people call me. I was given Kern by my best friend who at 2/3 years old couldn't say Kerensa. I'm also just called K by some friends and my nieces, nephews, and my friend's kids all call me KK.

The only thing I don't like about my name is when people call me Credenza. I'm not a piece of furniture.

My name is Kerensa. My mom named me after a Victoria Holt book. When I was in school I went by Keri because children consistently made fun of my name & it didn't come easy for them to pronounce. But I don't think it is that hard to pronounce.

I absolutely love my name and have only met 1 other Kerensa in real life. I don't think it sounds old lady like & absolutely love my name.

I also hate it when people pronounce it with a z. At the end it should sound like "suh".

I had a daughter in June 2000, I chose to spell it differently, Karynzah. Beautiful name, beautiful meaning. I've always been asked if it's a real name, what does it mean etc.. Fits my daughter perfectly. Karynzah Gabrielle, my only daughter.

Firstly I would like to say that my very dearest friend is named Kerensa, her nickname
is Keri, & online she spells her name, "Kere".

I've wanted to change my name my entire life. My new name (somewhat long) is going to
include Kerensah OR Kayrenzah for one of my middle names.

The other point I wanted to make was, it showed the pronunciation as, Pronounced
kə-REN-zə. I should be well-versed & know what the upside-down "e" means, alas, I
do not. My pronunciation is; (pn; kuh-REN-suh), the capital letters are the dominant

Beautiful name, can't understand why it is not used more often. I also like the alternative spelling 'Kerenza'.

I was going to name my first born daughter Kerensa Colleen but sadly, I had two boys and never got to use the name. But I worked with a man whose granddaughter was named Kerensa. Her nickname would have been Kere (Cara).

This name is so old-ladyish.

I love this name. The meaning is nice, and it's the name of a short-lived alter-ego of the heroine in my novel. I'd definitely name a daughter Kerensa, because it's unique but legit.

I think this is a beautiful name and I think it most certainly should be used more often. :-)

Very beautiful and I love it! My only concern is that it's unheard of where I live and I think others would think the child had a cre8ted name. I love the big classics so that bothers me a little.

I had a student named Caerensa once. I'd never seen it or heard it before. Definitely an interesting name.

Wonderful alternative to Karen (which is very common), and a bit more formal. I like it.

Very pretty and unusual. I don't know why, but Kerensa makes me think of the sea, and the colour blue. It also reminds me of "cadenza", which is Italian for "cadence". Though I really don't like Kerry as a nickname for Kerensa. In my opinion, Rensa and Ren are much nicer.

Carenza was the name of an elderly woman of medieval France who wrote a poem with two younger female poets. The poem begins "Lady Carenza of the lovely, gracious body" ("Na Carenza al bel cors avinen"). Carenza represents the virgin. See,_Yselda,_and_Carenza

I almost prefer the medieval spelling "Carenza" to the less phonetical Kerensa.
