My sister's name is Serenity (she's 4). When my parents named her they didn't intend to shorten the name, but she has been "Renny" almost since day 1. It fits her perfectly :)

I love the name Serenity, and personally, prefer it to Serena. I think it would be a great thing to name your child if you really like Firefly (which I do). Much better than Wash or Jayne.

"Wheden" is spelled wrong; it should be "WheDON" :)

It's a pretty name with a lovely meaning. I'm not a fan of word names but I can see the appeal and I'm surprised it's this popular.
