Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have named their second daughter Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck, a source confirmed to Us magazine.
Serafina was born on January 6th in Los Angeles.
Jennifer and Ben, also parents to daughter Violet, 3, did not reveal the meaning behind the baby’s name.
“Seraphina is an elaborately feminine kind of name that’s really come into style over the past few years, like [Affleck’s friend Matt Damon’s daughter] Isabella,” Baby Name Bible author Pamela Redmond Satran, told Us magazine.
“Seraphim is one of the highest orders of angels,” added Satran. “It kind of follows from Angelina, which has gotten super popular because of Angelina Jolie, as a a spiritual, heavenly name.
“The ‘ph’ spelling of Seraphina is more Hebrew in origin. It means ‘ardent,’ which is passionate,” she said.
“Ben and Jen really put Violet on the map,” Satran said of the couple’s knack for naming. “They transformed it from what people saw as a dowdy, old lady name to a really cute, modern choice.”
Wow! What do you think of Seraphina?
