    Oddly enough, I kind of like Zeferina, even though Serefina/Serephina etc. are too frilly for me. I guess the Z tends to be a harsh-sounding letter, but feels just right in an otherwise frilly name.

    I really like Zepherina with Ivy, Elizabeth and Anne-Sophie even though Anne-Sophie is probably a bit much. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Well, I love Zephyranth (for a boy). I generally don't like -ina names. Zeraphine is nice or Zephyrine

    I believe Zeferina is the Portuguese version/spelling of a name I'm more familiar with as Zephyrine, the French version. These names all relate to Zephyr or Zephyros, the Greek god of the West Wind, or Zephyrinus, a late Roman name (there was a saint with this name).

    So! An intriguing name with a lot of great history. I actually love it but think you need to stay simple in the middle -- one syllable if you've got a longer last name, two if you've got a one-syllable surname.

    @Pam I didn't know it was Portuguese, that's really interesting! From what I knew it's Spanish and it's somewhat common among Hispanics, my husband said he has his heart set on Zeferina Marie but I think I have my heart set on a totally different name though I do like Zephyrine.
