I’m not pregnant but I love the name and my family thinks I’m insane!
Serendipity is “the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way”
Nickname would probably be SiSi or Seren
What do you think? Yay or Nay?

@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!

@blushpink13: I like the idea of using Serena as a nickname.

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.
