Meaning & History

Directly from the biblical word seraphim which meant "fiery ones" from Hebrew and referred to an order of angels described in the Book of Isaiah (see Seraphina). A famous bearer of the name was Saint Seraphim of Sarov, a 19th-century Russian mystic, in whose case his name was an anglicization of his actual name Serafim.
