You cannot ask for respect if you are not willing to respect other people. Your reaction is not understandable

I love this name... it is definitely on my list. I think it sounds similar to Sarah, but like a modern version of the old and tired Sharon.

I like this much better than common Serena.

I can't say I care about the origin and meaning. I like how it sounded and we chose it :) It doesn't sound like sarin gas either, by the way. It's Welsh.

Yes, and by changing the spelling you also changed the meaning and the origin of the name so it now no longer is Welsh and doesn't mean "star."

Thames Says:

Yes, I can see that. It has a "C" obviously. That's the beauty of names, it can be whatever I want it to be. We changed it to a C because we liked how it looked more than the S.

If you're referring to the Turkish name/pronunciation, that's not how we pronounce it and my inspiration/definition did not come from "gazelle".

Ceren isn't the same name as Seren.

This is the name of a character of mine on World of Warcraft, ha ha.

I like the name but my husband says it's too close to sarin gas.

Too similar to Sarin gas - shame as is a nice name otherwise

Stella is so much easier but it's OK

Yeh, cool. Although where I come from 'eh' sounds are usually said more like 'ih/uh' sounds anyway.

I suppose, except with an 'en' ending instead of an 'in'.

Essa Says:

Thanks. That's what I thought. So it's pretty much Erin with an S? Much prettier that way than it would be if it was like Seh-REN

I love this name! My friend's friend is named Seren, and she pronounces it SAIR-ehn.

Emphasis on the first or second syllable?

My Welsh friend's daughter's name - she's ten. Very pretty. Reminds me of the equally lovely Serena a bit.

I absolutely love this name and it's currently in our #1 spot. Our daughter is named Nova and I think Seren would be an excellent addition! Now we just need to have another girl. haha! This name is soft, feminine, but not overly girly as another berry pointed out. I love it's strength and unique qualities. It also has the possibility of a cute nickname- Ren.

This is the name of a friend of mine from Turkey :)

Love this name! It's feminine and pretty but not frilly and girly. It's also simple and easy to spell (albeit a little hard to figure out how to pronounce for people who've never heard it before).

I love this name and wanted it on our 'list'. But DH wouldn't let me because he said it sounded like Sarin.

I have a friend who has a hissy fit if you don't pronounce her name the welsh way
