Jennifer Garner announces baby name

Baby Seraphina

Seraphina is Ben Affleck newest daughter's name. Affleck and Jennifer Garner have settled on the full name of Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck.

Baby SeraphinaSeraphina is simply one more of a long list of celebrity baby names of beautiful, but questionable origins.

Many have theorized that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are simply joining a long line of passionate parents who share an attention for a given name and that is how the out-of-the-ordinary name comes about.

Seraphina was born January 6 joining older sister Violet, 3. Think Seraphina's middle name Rose is a wink to sister Violet? We think that is a definite.

Something that makes us think: do you realize between Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, those two buddies have nothing but daughters? That is very cool!

No theories exist at the moment as to the source of the inspiration for the name of Seraphina. Our own describes the name as, "a Hebrew name. This name means: Fiery-winged. The name Seraphina comes from 'seraphim', who were the most powerful angels. Suitable only for girls. It is not so popular name."

Well, there you have it. Until more information arises from Ben and Jennifer, we like it!
