Seren is sweet. Boys can be sweet. Seren certainly isn't frilly and forty girls in the whole US is hardly anything. I prefer it to Soren, which is nice enough but I hear "sore" every time.

I can't really picture it on a boy, but I think that's mostly because I used it for a female character

quietbird Says:


The judgment on the Nameberry description of this name - too "soft"? - is disgusting, and demonstrates aptly my frustrations with this site. A boy's name can be soft. A boy can be soft. This is a beautiful name. Why shouldn't a boy have a beautiful name? To me, it may be soft (in a good way) - but it is also strong. A soft and strong man is a blessing to the world.

Zuzana Says:


I like Seren on a boy, I think it's masculine enough and sweet sounding. I can't really imagine it on a girl

Essa Says:


Strange that on the girls version of this Nameberry says it is a common Turkish boys name but on the boys listing it doesn't mention this at all.

So what's not too soft for a boy? Seren isn't too much different from Soren, which is good for boys. I like it spelled Seron, though.
