    Just wanted to say that I ADORE Seren Elena. Love love love. With such a gorgeous name I wouldn't call her Sam. Seren is stunning.

    Well, it depends in what tradition you pronounce it. This is a common Czech name, and then it's AH-leh-na with the stress on the first syllable,but soft vowels thereafter.

    This is comparable to the Italian Elena, which also has soft syllables. It's EH-lehna, not Eh-LAY-na, in Italian.

    But in an English context, I think there are really no rules, so you can tel lpeople to pronounce it any way you want.
