Sera is a family name that is written with kanji. The Europe and US names "Sara" and "Sarah" are both given names. Furthermore even if it was the European / US name being pronounced in Japanese it would most likely be written in katakana, however it is written in kanji, (世良).
The only reason the name "Sera" was used in the first place was because it makes Masumi's full name (Sera Masumi / 世良 真純) sound like the Gundam character "Seira Masu" (Sayala Mass) to complete Gosho's Gundam trio with Shuuichi and Touru. Its likely the name can be ignored other than the fact that there have been name changes to their family name in the family as a whole.
Oh, didn't know about the kanji and katanaka rule.... my bad, thanks for notifying me. either way, I doubt gosho was trying to change the MG eye style...as to the family name changes, it was most likely AKAI->SERA, Shuichi kept his surname AKAI, Masumi went with the change to SERA, and shuukichi(for an unknown reason) went with a second change from SERA->Haneda.
