Etymology & Historical Origin - Serenity

Serenity is an English vocabulary word defining a state of calmness, tranquility and peacefulness. The word ultimately comes from the Latin “serenus” meaning “clear, calm” (mainly used to describe weather). In the mid-15th century, “serenity” was often used as a title of honor applied to Roman Emperors and Roman Catholic Popes. Eventually the word evolved more broadly to embody its figurative meaning “without worry; a state of gladness”. As a female personal name, Serenity is more or less a 21st century invention. Sort of a modern-day version of old-fashioned virtue names (Grace, Faith, Hope). Serenity, Trinity and Destiny are names American parents have coined for their baby girls. They are used rarely on babies born outside the United States.

Popularity of the Name Serenity

Serenity is new to the American popularity charts, first debuting in 1997. Since that time, Serenity has jumped almost 900 spots on the Top 1000 list of most favored baby girl names to secure a place on the Top 100 list in 2009. This represents an almost unprecedented growth in popularity (challenged only, perhaps, by Nevaeh). Serenity’s energetic climb to the heights of the charts makes it a trendy choice, but the name has its charms nonetheless. It’s wistful, lyrical and, well, peaceful. We also think its numerology number (7) is apropos given the quiet mysticism characteristic of the 7 personality.

Personality of the Girl Name Serenity

The number Seven personality is deeply mystical and highly in tune with their spirituality. They operate on a different wavelength than the average joe. Spending time alone comes easily to Sevens, as it gives them time to contemplate philosophical, religious and spiritual ideas in an effort to find "real truth".  Sevens are wise, but often exude mystery as if they are tapped into something the rest of us don't understand. They love the outdoors and are fed by nature. Sevens are constantly seeking to understand human nature, our place in the universe, and the mystery of life in general. This makes them quite artistic and poetic, but they are also keen observers with high intellect - so they are equally scientific-minded. Sevens are charitable and care deeply about the human condition.
