Gender: Female Meaning of Seraphine: "burning ones" Origin of Seraphine: French from Hebrew

Seraphine Origin and Meaning

The name Seraphine is a girl's name of Hebrew, French origin meaning "burning ones".

Seraphine is the Gallic version of the angelic name Seraphina. But while Seraphina has been rising rapidly since Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck chose it for their second daughter, Seraphine has been largely ignored, though we believe the French vowel-sound ending will soon be more stylish than the a-endings that have predominated in girls' names for years.

Another cousin, Seraphita, is the heroine of an eponymous 1837 Balzac novel.

QueenieGuldbaek Says:


I prefer Serafina as it looks more Japanese.

QueenieGuldbaek Says:


Not a fan. It sounds too French.

Boba_Buddy_Le Says:


For me, it sounds classier and more elegant than Seraphina.

ARead Says:


My daughter is Seraphine Clementine and we love the name! She’s only five months old, so we are in the early stages of nicknames. I love Sadie as a nackname but so far the only ones that really seem to fit her are Seffie, Feeny, and Fina.

My daughter is Seraphine Rose, and I planned on calling her Raphi, but it turned out she is 100% a Sera or Seri lol. We get compliments on her name all the time, and just like Jasmin said, we are yet to meet another.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Precisely - which makes the meaning awesome and beautiful - not scary.

kpearl8 Says:


It doesn't mean burning people, it comes from the "seraphim", angels that surround the throne of God. They're burning with the light of his glory.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I like them both, and have only just discovered Seraphine, but I prefer Sophie to Sophia, Julie to Julia, Sylvie to Sylvia, etc - so will possibly end up being a fan.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I had never heard of it either, even though I hear Seraphina and Serafina quite a lot lately. I love it, and will add it to my favourites.

fromtheocean12 Says:


I think Seraphine sounds better than Seraphina, but I love both of them.

Fluffykitten101 Says:


Seraphine is stunning! I would love to meet a Seraphine or a Seraphina. I think Seraphine has all the beauty from Seraphina, just less hard to say and will probably be less popular when Seraphina reaches The Top 1000. I adore the many nicknames that come with this lovely name, including: Raphy, Seraph (yes, I have heard this one before), Fifi, Phina, or if your child wants to blend in there is always Sera.

the meaning is scary. "burning ones"?

zuzana Says:


I think I like Seraphine better than Seraphina

Jasmin Says:


I named my baby girl Seraphine Elizabeth. I think it's a beautiful name not only for a baby, but for a grown woman as well. No one seems to have heard it before, everyone is surprised by how beautiful and original it is, and if they can't pronounce it, it just tell them it rhymes with Josephine and then they get it.

Essa Says:


I love Seraphina and want to love this but it just sounds unfinished. When I say it I do imagine it being said with a very broad French accent which makes it sounds beautiful and poetic!
