Derived from the biblical word seraphim, which was Hebrew in origin and meant "fiery ones". This is the name of an order of angels, described by Isaiah in the Bible as having six wings each. This name was borne by saint Seraphina, a 5th-century martyr.

In the end, Serena basically means calm and tranquil, the name is supposed to represent grace.
Meanwhile, Seraphna, derived from Seraphina, is fiery, angelic, graceful yet well heard, well seen, and taken notice of.

I like them both. :)
