I honestly love this name! My sister is named Selina and she is kind, loving and smart. She loves her name as well, and she's very proud of it. It is also very unique, and I love the spelling! When it comes to spelling… I recommend you to use this name instead of Selena.

I'm a Selina - named after my great grandmother. I've always loved my name and had lots of nice comments about it. It's not that common in the UK but I have met a couple of Selina's before (albeit with different spellings). I love that it's derived from the Greek moon goddess too! The shortened version in my family is Nina (which I love and use regularly) and occasionally Sel with work colleagues (which I don't like but people love to shorten things!)
My mum named me Selina but I didn't like it at all so I stopped using it.
This is a pretty name. Much better and more historical than Selena.
