Seraphina Affleck -- Jennifer Garner's New Daughter!

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have announced the name of their second daughter — Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck.

Jen‘s rep told People the news first.

Seraphina, who joins 3-year-old big sis Violet, is “derived from the Biblical word ‘seraphim,’ which was Hebrew in origin and meant ‘fiery ones.’ ” She was born last Tuesday (January 6) in Los Angeles.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the name Seraphina — YAY or NAY?

  • kristy

    I love that name! Seraphina and Violet are beautiful names! :-)

  • http://justjared noname

    I prefer Rose Elizabeth or Elizabeth Rose. I have nothing against biblical names, I just don’t like the name Seraphina very well. Rose is a hue like violet, so I think that it would have been more appropriate to name the baby Rose.

    i’m speaking Hebrew and living in israel but i never hear about the name Seraphina!!!!!!!!
    but im starting to like it (;

  • Tdani

    NAY. Sounds too old-fashioned, like Josephine or Geraldine

  • xoxoxxxooox

    it’s okay. they’ll probably call her sera, which is pretty.

  • Caroline

    How do you pronoune it?

  • Alexkziel

    BORING and ridiculous, just like her parents….

  • Womenajza´

    I dont like it!

    Seraphine is a HORRIBLE name, in spanish is “Serafina” xD Is a name ridiculous for me, but, Violet is a cute name.

  • Amy

    Seraphina Affleck sounds like a Harry Potter character. I like it.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    …`why they had to give her such an ugly name?!? LOL
    …`lemme get my notepad – and get my ;fugly-jokes ready.

  • Cara

    I like it. It’s not as traditional as I would have thought of them.

    I have heard it before, my Mother is Italian and it can also be an Italian name (but spelt differently..Serafina which I prefer, “ph” seems odd in a girl’s name to me). My Mom had an Aunt Serafina in her Italian family.

    As some said, she’ll probably get called Sera from her family and in America though, but Italians don’t shorten it.

    It’s like the name Angelina, I love the long version, not so much the Angie though (I love any name with the sound “Angel” in it, such as Angelica, Angelique, Angelina, ect.).

  • lakers fan in boston

    stupid name tbh
    they should have called her lily

  • hotel

    i think it’s pronounced SAY-RAH-FEE-NAH
    i don’t like it very much but that’s not my baby so it’s cool if they like it

  • upcoming inaugural

    I wonder who little Seraphina looks like.

  • Justme

    It would have been cute to name her Lily or Rose. There is an actress is Hollywood (can’t remember her name) who is named after a flower and all her sisters too. But maybe the Afflecks thought that was too tacky LOL.

  • slambang

    Very unusual, but it’s pretty.

  • italo

    Here in Brazil its a name thats not used for decades. You only see women in the verge of dying named like this.

  • brittanyh

    Rose seems to be a favorite Hollywood name.

  • Lauren

    omg please call her sera.

  • Kally

    Stupide celebrity!!

  • ava alexis

    justme the actress is Poppy Montgomery
    Poppy’s sisters are named Rosie Thorn, Daisy Yellow, Lily Belle and Marigold Sun – all named after flowers

  • erlyn

    What a sweet name! I can’t wait to see her and Violet together! :)

  • idril

    It seems too old-fashioned for a baby girl.

  • groundcontrol

    Meh. For me this name is a miss. Maybe it wll grow on me. It does have the potential to be a strong name.
    Uh oh. It just occurred to me. Are they going to call her Seri? Seri vs. Suri – I can see it now. Grudge Match Battle of the Hollywood Tykes. “Your daddy’s in the closet.” “NO! YOUR daddy’s in the closet.”

  • pauline

    UGLY name!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    What on earth are they thinking !??

  • vmars111

    They should get rid of the “Seraphina” part and just give her “Rose Elizabeth” to coincide with lil’ Violet!

    I bet when she grows up she’ll be called “Rose” or even “Sarah” for short!

  • mickeymouse

    LMAO, that’s worst than Chase Milan…biblical I don’t think those two have anything spiritual about them.

  • mimi

    How stupid giving someone three names, give me a f#cking break!

  • Michelle

    It’s a cute name with some elegance added on there. At least they didn’t give their baby a really stupid name like Apple or Bronx Mowgli.

  • Robo

    Serafina like the witch in The Golden Compass!

    … great!

  • stefano

    what a pretty name!! but yeah, here in Brazil it’s a very old and unusal name.

  • lizzie

    humm If they call it Sera she’s gonna feel unique and I tink It is a pretty name

  • Helena

    Why not? I don’t get those two middle names, though. I know I know, it’s up to them, but does anybody know why they gave her two middle names? I like Rose and I love Elizabeth but Seraphina Rose Elizabeth is quite mouthful. I think Seraphina Rose would be just simpler and nicer. Like a fantasy princess or what. :)

  • joy

    sounds like jewish name Serafima(((( not a cute name for a little girl

  • i r m a

    Immediately made me think of the witch queen, Serafina Pekkala, from His Dark Materials…

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    it is nice – like the musical. better than marigold or something.

  • pliepi from Holland

    I think it is an unique name!!!!
    Serephina Rose Elizabeth Affleck. Just a normal, sweet, special and unique name for a ‘fiery’ quite girl!

    I realy love it! I have an aunt and her name is Severina, and my own name is also Elizabeth. The three names are beatiful. I’m wondering how you came up =-)

    And I think they are a bit spiritual, because they also baptized little Violet… so the name linked to the bible sounds cool! ‘Fiery ones’; I think we have to watch out!

    Congratulations Ben, Jennifer and big sister Violet! I hope you will be very happy for many years!!!
