    I don't think a Seraphina would face any problems with her name, especially not in a English-speaking country. I love it! I'm quite sure that I'd use Fina as a nickname for Seraphina, simply because I like the meaning of Fina (something like 'the pretty one' in Swedish). I think Seraphina would fit in very nicely in your (future) sibset!

    I like it but I wonder about the meaning being to much... Fiery, serpent like angel of God? Awesome on one hand, a tad scary on the other, lol!

    What're your thoughts on the meaning, pp's?

    I almost used Seraphina for my daughters mn. I still call her that from time to time. Seraphina is beautiful, and definately could work. So many possible nn: Sara, Siri, Ari, Fina, Finn..I had picked the name Seraphina specifically for the meaning "angel" my dd truly is my angel!

    I don't think it's unwearable, really. It's just a lot of name. I'm a simple sort of girl, haha, so I don't think I could pull off Seraphina, or even something like Juliet, haha. They just seem to be so rich in character and I'm not that exciting. I think it's gorgeous, though, and very wearable, especially with nns to make it more usable.

    I think Ari could work... I think Sephie is adorable, too. I know someone who had/has Seraphina nn Nina on her list, I think that works, too. I think you could honestly get away with variants of Sarah as a nn for Seraphina, too--like Sadie, Suri, etc.

    I agree that it goes really great with Alessandra and Nathaniel especially, but also all your other names. Henry and Seraphina would be really cute for siblings, I think!

    It's definitely a lot of name! It's one reason I was wary of it, but it's not that much more than Alessandra or Nathaniel...
    Oh I love the idea of Nina as a nickname!
