My name is Serena, my parents chose it. 1. Thought it was pretty and 2. My older brother was such a loud, boisterous kid they named me it in the hope I would be my namesake (peaceful etc). It did work out that way in the end too!
I didn't like my name when I was little because I thought it sounded "babyish" but I don't mind it now and I get complemented on my name regularly by almost everyone!
My nicknames are- Reeni, Reena, Neens, Beena and various other terrible family nicknames like Reenibobs, Reerah, Serenanina (to mention the least silly) and of course inevitably I get called every similar sounding name going - Sabrina, Selena... Sevrina (not sure that's even a name?)
But I actually really love the name Sirena which is a different name that comes from the mythical man-eating mermaids of mythology (Sirens).
So take from this what you will, but overall the names seems to be received well!

I've always liked Serena as a name. Though I'm far more likely to use the similar-sounding Sabrina in real life, I'll never turn up my nose at Serena. It's suitable for all ages, elegant without being boring / staid, individual without being too "out there."

This is a gorgeous name! I think Reni is a very cute nickname and Serena sounds very professional when the kid grows up. Whoever has this name is very lucky.
Chibi_Sam  5/7/2020
Selena is so pretty, I love it!
nylonpanda  12/13/2019
Not appealing to me. Strangely, I love Sarina though. Go with Sarina or any form of Selene.

Serena is my favorite female British text to speech voice.

I think this name is awful. Suh-ree-nuh. Yuck! Anyone who likes this name must have awful taste. Serena is an awful name. It is worse than Joanna, Nicole, Charlotte, Eleanora, Valentine, Sophia, and whatnot.

Serena Killingsworth is the third daughter of the moon in the series of that name. She can read minds.
Hekate Rose  9/1/2019
Sounds kind of shrill.

I think the name Serena Josephine is cute name for a girl! Also Serena Josephine is a perfect combo for any parents who like the name Serena Josephine for their daughters!

Serena Joy is a major character in The Handmaids Tale. She is portrayed by Faye Dunaway in the film adaption and Yvonne Strahovski in the television series.
peonini  8/3/2018
This is one of the most delectable of all girls' names. It is beautiful in both meaning and sound.
Recently I came across the name Szeren (pronounced Se-rain) which is the Hungarian version, and it reminds me of the pretty unrelated Welsh name Seren.

One of my absolute favorite names because I have always loved Sailor Moon. Not a fan of the name 'Serenity' though...

This was going to be one of my names and it's so pretty! I love the sound and the combo Serena Maria sounds gorgeous!
thezenithofnadir  4/6/2017
This is such a soft and delicate name. I never really thought of it as a name for my daughter but I do now, I love it with the middle name Noelle and Elizabeth and for siblings I love it with Luna, Dante and Melody also Angeline. Serena & Melody would sound so pretty. So I'm not sure yet but it's on my list. I imagine a cool photographer who goes by Rena who lives in New York or Sailor moon, not that Gossip Girls mess.
QuinnBethany  3/17/2017
My name is Serena and I hated it because I hated my father and he is the one who choose that name. Now I'm all about myself, I am a really fun person who is lovable, peaceful and very much pretty :) I am the meaning of my name. My aunt calls me Rena.

My name is Serena and I love my name! My friends' nickname for me is Reeni. Bit hard when people call me "Sabrina" or "Selena" or (somehow) "Beena", though.

We named our daughter (born on June 17, 2016) Serena. It's a beautiful name that fits perfectly for our beautiful baby girl. Every time I said it during the pregnancy it made me smile. We've also received nothing but positive comments from family, friends & coworkers. It's the perfect name for our little angel!
PWC360  7/6/2016
I strongly dislike this name. It sounds trashy, tacky and immature. It also reminds me too much of a porn star or stripper, so yeah not a good choice.
― Anonymous User  7/5/2016
This name is pretty boring and doesn't sound good. Sounds like a name someone annoying would have.

My name is Sarena. My mother heard the name while on vacation and she loved it so much that she named me Sarena. I didn't like my name when I was younger because I was teased and bullied a lot. I like it now because it's becoming a little more popular. More parents are naming their daughters Sarena (or with an alternate spelling.)
Sarena82  5/26/2016
My name is Serena and I get bullied for it. I hate my name so much I go by Crystal.
SerenaRose  4/22/2016
Since it's from Latin, the "common" pronunciation is wrong. The correct one is pretty strong - Sèrèna. The "e" is pronounced without the English inflection.
Serena23  2/23/2016
I really like this name. It's sweet yet strong.

I prefer the name Sabrina. And Serena from Pokémon the Series: XY has ruined this name for me now.

My name is Serena Renee.. I love my name. Everybody always tells me how beautiful it is, but believe me, my name is nothing like my character.

Related name: Serenity.
Sabertooth  8/22/2014
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.

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).

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!

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'.
― Anonymous User  6/7/2013
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.

In my French class, the teacher pronounced it "Say-ray-na" (which I guess would be how you pronounce it in France).
― Anonymous User  7/11/2011
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
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!

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
Really pretty name. I knew a little girl named this, she was such a sweetheart. :)
Chrila96  2/4/2011
I don't really like or dislike this name; however, it really reminds me of the word "cerebral".

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
