My friend SaLy reminded me we haven't yet discussed the name of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's second daughter.
I've been thinking about it since I heard it, and...I can't decide! Can you? On the pro side, it's like the name Sara/Sarah, but with something different on the end. This is an excellent formula for making an unusual name that still feels familiar---and it leaves a good plain nickname for a baby who grows up more left-brained than right-brained. On the con side, SPELLING OMG. I had to keep looking it up again and Again and AGAIN. I kept wanting to spell it Serephina or Saraphina or Sarephina or Sarefina or Serafina or Sarafina or Serefina. Even after I thought I'd gotten the hang of it, I wrote it Sarephina, then corrected it to Serephina. DANG IT! I'm still not positive I've got it right.
So what do you think of the name? Let's put a poll over to the right. [Poll closed; see below.]
