April 2009-Jennifer Garner appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, where she explained how she and Ben Affleck - and their 3-year-old daughter Violet - decided on their new daughter Seraphina's name:
"Violet, ever since she figured out that I was pregnant, she said, 'Oh, that's Sara.' And we didn't know if it was a boy or a girl, so we were like, 'Well, we'll see.' We don't know where she came up with it, but she said 'Sara' consistently the whole time. We kept saying, Well, she's not going to name the kid, she's a baby! We'll decide, we'll figure it out.
So then the baby was born, still no name. She looked really angelic, so we started thinking of angel kinds of names. And then a week into it we hadn't decided so we just went with what Violet wanted. But Seraphina means 'little angel,' and the thing we liked about it is that it means 'angel' in every language."
- Mar 6, 2009-It's the first glimpse of Seraphina Rose Elizabeth! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were seen picking up their 3-year-old daughter Violet from preschool with their 2-month-old daughter Seraphina.
Seraphina was born Jan. 6 in Los Angeles. She joins 3-year-old big sister Violet.
No explanation was offered for the unique name. One website specializing in the origin of names refers to Seraphina as "derived from the Biblical word 'seraphim,' which was Hebrew in origin and meant 'fiery ones.'"
