Serafin Name Meaning

Polish, Spanish (Serafín), Portuguese, and Italian (Venetian): from a medieval personal name, Latin Seraphinus, from Hebrew serafim. In the Bible this term is applied to the class of six-winged creatures described in Isaiah 6, which came to be regarded in the Middle Ages as a class of angels; it is the plural form of Hebrew saraf, probably a derivative of saraf ‘to burn’. In part the Portuguese surname may represent a religious byname adopted in honor of the Capuchin monk St. Seraphinus (1540–1604, formally canonized in 1767).
