I'm not quite sure but it just didn't feel right when I started to use it in my head for her. Also, I was debating whether or not I like the nn of Sera. I am of the feeling that you can't pick nn's for them as someone will use the one you don't like so you should at least be ok with them. I had forgotten about Alessandra as it is also Italian but my nephew's name is Benjamin Alexzander so I though it was too close to use.

I'm starting to like Madeline Serafina Modesto as a name choice even though Madeline is more popular. Or should it be Serafina Madeline Modesto. Or are both just too many syllables...
Sorry if someone else already said this.
My thoughts: Lynn + Sandra = Lysandra.
Also, Serafina is gorgeous.
Liane (prn lee-ann) or Shyanne (Cheyenne) or Shay or Suzanne. I see both of them represented in all of them.
How about focusing on middle names, using variations of Lynne and Ann?
The first thing that came to mind for me was Susannah. It would be using the S. I do love your idea of Annalynn.
