From the experts:
Seraphina is one of the most-searched name on Nameberry, yet is not quite yet in the overall U.S. Top 1000 — though we predict it won't be long before it will be solidly among its ranks. The highest-ranking angels, the six-winged seraphim, inspired the lovely name Seraphina, which was brought into the contemporary spotlight when chosen by high-profile parents Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck for their second daughter, following the influential choice of Violet for their first.
Latinate version Serafina is also getting some attention; the name is enjoying a style revival thanks to the current taste for strong, old-fashioned, yet elaborately feminine names. Seraphina has much in common with top choices Isabella, Sophia, and Olivia, and we predict it could be within the U.S. Top 100 in the next decade.
A variation, Seraphita, is the eponymous heroine of a Balzac novel.
