    Opinions on Serena Fay

    I want to honor my grandmother Janet Irene, and although not my favorite name, Serena is a very pretty name that happens to have a similar meaning as Irene, peaceful.
    I also love names from mythology. Most of my other favorite names are from myths, however, I couldn't find one that I thought went well with Serena. I think Fay showcases a bit of a magical touch though, despite not having a deep mythological background. I usually prefer Faye but with the Es in Serena it is better without it.
    I am really starting to like this combo. What do you think?

    I think it's very nice, although I actually prefer it with the final e on Faye: Serena Faye. Lovely.

    Thank you! I do think the e at the end balances out Faye and makes it feel more complete, I was just worried about an E overload haha
