Seren; seh-ren, popular welsh name meaning "little star"
Even after her name was pretty much decided upon we didn't tell anyone. It wasn't until after she was named that I realized how many people would have trouble with the pronunciation. We have heard a lot of different variations now... but when people ask, I just tell them it is pronounced "Seren" like in Serendipity...
We had talked about calling her Ren for short, but every time we did we got a talking to from Zella... She would say, "NO, she is Baby SERen!" After a few months Zella started calling her Baby Ren herself, and decided it was ok for us to as well...
I love the meaning of her name and feel like it's exactly right for her. She is a such sweet baby, and her eyes seem to twinkle. She has also been such a little light in our life, especially after what I felt was such a dark and depressing pregnancy for me. We love our Little Star, she has been the perfect addition to our family.
