    @blushpink13:  I like it. It’s crazy but I like it. I think Sera (Sara??) and Seren are normalish nicknames.

    Honestly, I think its too long. Names more than 2 or at most 3 syllables usually get ccompletely lost. Also, there’s a good chance she would be teased for it.

    @blushpink13:  Honestly, I would not want to grow up with the name of Serendipity. I work at a school and see how children are made fun of or get strange looks/people mess up paperwork because they have a “unique” name. I wouldn’t want my child to be so “unique” that they might get made fun of. That’s just my opinion, if you love it…then I guess by all means go for it. I guess you would need to convince your spouse to go with it as well.

    I think it sounds pretty… but it sounds like a cute way of naming a baby who was an accident…

    Like @Ms.GoodEarth: said. I would think this baby was an accident. A good accident, but still.

    Not a name. Not as bad as apple or blue but close.

    Also, Saren as a nickname sounds, at least how I would pronounce it like “sarin”, the deadly nerve agent. Not an association I would want for my kid!

    Children love to make nicknames of the other kids in class. Serendipity has great meaning, and is a lovely word. But it could also be abbreviated to “dippy” by other kids… and that wouldn’t be nice…

    If you really love it, have it for a middle name.

    I’m not a fan. How about a virtuous name that’s more common?

    I can’t imagine employers gravitating toward an application with the name Serendipity on it. Not trying to be mean, I just don’t think she would be taken seriously in the workplace. Women have a hard enough time being respected and I don’t think the name Serendipity would help.

    Not a fan; the connotations of the name are awkward- like, are you announcing to the world that the baby was a (happy) accident? And if she wasn’t, the name just makes no sense.

    There are too many opportunities for teasing with this name.  I don’t care for it.
