What do you think of Serena?

hey everyone, I’m expecting and about to deliver at the end of this month and I’m really starting to scramble for names. All I have left is this one name. Last name will be Raine.

Serena Aria 


Please give Me your opinio.

Serena is a lovely, feminine name. My only hesitation is that Serena Raine sounds like a description of a soft, gentle rain shower. Descriptive names aren't my personal taste, but some people love them, so there's no right or wrong decision there.

I love Serena, but I think there might be too much repetition of sounds in Serena Aria Raine. What about a middle name choice with some contrasting phonemes?

I also like Serena, but agree that Serena Aria Raine (and just Serena Raine) does sound a bit repetitive. However, if those are the names you love and it doesn't bother you, I think it would be fine.

Separately the names are fine, but not sure with the flow Serena Raine or Serena Aria Raine - lots of repetition of sounds,  but if you like it,  that's what matters

I like Serena and I like Aria but I don't know if they flow well together and added with Raine, it DOES feel like a mouthful.  Now, that said, if it works for you, it works for me.  

I really like both Serena AND Aria, and I don't think there'll be many situations where they'll both be put together.  The fn/ln Serena Raine has a great flow to me.  It almost feels melodious.  I suspect Raine must be a tough surname to choose a first name for, since it's often used as a first or middle name as well!
