  • I love the name Serenity Lorene!! I think it is beautiful! All kids get made fun of, so if you kid only gets made fun of for their name they are lucky lol. I dont really like the name Johnathan but that is only because a kid I grew up with had the name and he was a total jerk/perv!!

  • I love the name Serenity. I'd urge you to go with it. Movies and such pass quickly, just fads, but her name will be forever. We named our son Tycho and I was a bit nervous he'd be teased for having an unusual name, but now he's in school and nearly all the kids have strange names. The Matthews, Marys, and Jessica's seem to be the minority now!

  • I am not a big fan of Serenity, but I don't see why she would get made fun of for it. I will say that when I look at Lorene, I don't pronounce it the same way as Loraine. So you might have to correct people when they say it.

    I love Johnathan Blaine. It's a great name, Blaine is one of my favorite boy names!

  • I think Serenity would have to grow on me but I think it could. It is a beautiful word...and I too do not like the name Jonathan b/c all the "Jonh's" I know are jerks/pervs! Blaine is a neat name though!
