  1. That what i been want to name my baby girl

  2. Before my father passed away. He mentioned that if i ever had children and if it was a girl to name her Selena after the famous Mexican/American Singer Selena that passed away 23 years ago.

  3. I choose the name Selena after the Latina singer who I adore and looked up too. Beautiful women and name..

  4. Picked it bc it’s the name of a singer from the 90’s, Selena Quintanilla.

  5. I love the name Selena it sounds absolutely beautiful. The name means a lot because it was a great great grandmother’s name. The name is a bit common which I slightly dislike but i love the way it sounds with my first daughter’s name Liylah.

  6. The movie Selena. I love the name.
