"Whenever I was in school everybody would get a laugh out of the teachers saying my name wrong. I've always loved my name and I wouldn't change it for the world. It's always been annoying when in a contest and the judges saying my first AND sadly my last name wrong as well. Nicknames people have gave me are Sabine, Sabby, Bina, and Beanie. My dad gave me my name after watching a movie and hearing the main character call his granddaughter his little Sabina. I live in Canada and have only met one other person with the name Sabina" Feb. 3, 2018:

"This is my grandmother's middle name, and was her grandmother's first name, and upon doing genealogy, I've found that almost every generation of my family had a Sabina in it going back to the late 1600's in England. It is also, coincidentally, the name of the church I attended when I was a child (my family was not from the area that the church was in). I've long thought that if I have a daughter, I'd like to name her Sabina. I have always heard it pronounced "Sah-bye-nah", incidentally." Dec. 19, 2010:
"Sabina was the name of my beloved late mother (1927, Poland to 1963, Ontario, Canada). Now in my 50s, I have only met a few Sabinas in my life; nonetheless, whenever I hear that exquisite name, it resonates like beautiful music." Dec. 13, 2010:

"Hi, I'm also Sabina. I come from Slovenia where this name is quite common. I only know 2 person that have the same name as me, but by statistics about less than 2000 women in our country share this name. I totally love it <3 In childhood and in highschool I was the only one with that kind of name and that made me feel unique. My friends call me Sabinca,Sabi,Bin?(i),Bina,Saab. Thank god I was never called Sabrina, because I think this are two different names and I love mine more. In our country name is spelled s-a-b-i-n-a with stress on letter i. I was often told how beautiful this name is and the great thing about is that is very memorable. It's meaning comes from latin and means arising from the genus Sabine.I think my name is gorgeous and I would never give it up." Aug. 15, 2010:

"My name is Sabina. I never met any Sabinas growing up, but now I have met several. I see patients all day and have come across a fair amount of patients named Sabina. I get so many compliments on my name. My heritage is Indian (India). My parents moved to the US many years ago and I was born here. They liked the name Sabina because it sounded Indian, yet it was easy for Americans to pronouce (except I am always am called Sabrina just like the rest of you!). I have really grown to love my name!" Aug. 24, 2009:

"I know a Sabina in the U.S. and she is very wealthy, attractive and successful. It's pronounced sah-BYE-nah. She named her daughter the same (that I would not do because my father had the same name as his father and he hated being "junior" all his life). I recommend making it a middle name for your offspring if it's your first name. It's a beautiful name." Jun. 7, 2009:
"I love the name, but I'm worried people will confuse it for "Sabrina." I also love Sabine." Apr. 28, 2009:

I also share the name Sabina. I love it. I always get compliments wherever I go. I live in America, and my Father is American while my mother is German. It's pronounced like Sabrina but without the "r". The origanial German Spelling is sabena, but my Mother changed it due to the fact the "i" makes it more understandible withen america. I love the fact that practically no one elae has the same name. (Well no one that I've ever met);)" Mar. 15, 2009:

"my name is sabina and people often call me sabrina or sabine. my aunt came up with this name. i like my name sooooo much." Nov. 10, 2008:
"That`s my name. But friends usually calls me Sabi. It`s shorter version. But i like it.
Always liked my name, `cause it`s not usual in my country. [lithuania.]
furthermore, Sabi by itself means "the bloom of time." It connotes natural progression-tarnish, hoariness, rust-the extinguished gloss of that which once sparkled. It's the understanding that beauty is fleeting.
The idea of sabi also occurs in the haiku of the famous seventeenth-century poet Matsuo Bashı, where its connection with the word sabishi (solitary, lonely) is emphasized. The following haiku typifies sabi(shi) in conveying an atmosphere of solitude or loneliness that undercuts (as is usual in Japanese poetry) the distinction between subjective and objective.
Thought, it really fits me. I found it somewhere, tah Sabi also means elegant, elegance in japanese, but not sure..
Anyways. Love being myself." Oct. 21, 2008:
"Sabina is a typicall ancient Islamic Name and it means beautiful!! Many girls from Asia have this name." Aug. 17, 2008:
"My name is Sabina! And I love it!!! Yes, when people first read my name they say Sabrina. I suppose due to the popular movie with Audrey Hepburn by the same title. But once I correct someone, I get the same response "oh sorry, that is a beautiful name". I was born in Poland. And my mother first named me Ania Maria (or Anne Marie in English), but two other newborn girls were in the hospital with the same name. My aunt suggested Sabina after a girl she went to college with, and always liked the name. So two days after my birth, my name was changed on my birth certificate. I couldn't be happier. I truly am a Sabina. To me it is unique, sophisticated, exotic and feminine. Just like me and my personal style. So I love that it is so unique and rare. I have met only 2 other Sabina's in my lifetime and I am 32 years old." Aug. 15, 2008:

"I was named Sabina because my Dad, an English professor, had read two poems in English Lit with my name. I love it. It is unusual, feminine, beautiful, elegant, rather exotic. Like me! It means a woman of the Sabine tribe of Italy. These women were simply abducted, treated well, and given the right to own land, unlike the other variations of the legend...and became the mothers of the future Roman empire." Apr. 28, 2008:
"My name is Sabina. I pronounce it Sa bye(long I)na. It is a name I inherited from my grandmother who was Irish. I was told that it was Gaelic for Sarah but I have not confirmed this. Although I always am told that my name is great, people pronounce it incorrectly all the time as Sabeena, Sabrina, etc. I do not see this as a problem since I like all forms of the name." Aug. 2, 2007:

"I'm just writing to let you know what a nice exicrpenee my friend's girl exicrpeneed using your blog. She noticed so many issues, which include how it is like to possess an excellent helping mindset to have other people completely learn about a variety of tortuous topics. You actually did more than our expected results. Thank you for churning out those warm and helpful, trusted, edifying as well as easy guidance on this topic to Ethel." Mar. 16, 2013:
"Sabrina, you really do look buautifel, enjoy every second of showing off your new bump. After a loss, it's a very special thing. I was only dying to start showing with my little boy too. I'm slim too, and I thought I was showing quite early on, but like previous posters have mentioned, I was suddenly, at seven and eight months, getting the oh my goodness, you're pregnant!' comments But I'm definitely showing more on this pregnancy (my third; my second was a loss too). I'd heard that you tend to show sooner on subsequent pregnancies, but I feel so enormous already! I feel as though I completely skipped that showing-but-still-comfortable stage, and went straight to dear-lord-please-let-me-sit down" Jul. 12, 2012:

"My name is Sabina. I knew it's a beautiful name since childhood coz people told me so. They said it's the other name for Sara and i was called Sara by relatives until high school. Some still call me sara. The problem is they call me Sabrina.Some even type Sabrina on important paperworks. I tell them, whatever, just don't put Sabrina on a check/money order. For nicknames, I've been called the Witch, Saab, Beanie, Sabie and Brina. I only answer Saab. Close frinds use Saab. I have only met one sabina here in the US, and she pronounce hers as Sa-bye-enah.

"I haven't met anyone with my name. I love my name! I find it very powerful yet sexy. However, since I was born in Thailand, I am not able to use "Sabina" as my birth certificate name. I am using a Thai name in College, of course, it's shorter, has no meaning at all because my mother doesn't know Thai. And since I was a girl, the doctor decided to call me "Ying" which means a girl in Thai.
I am finding a similar name to Sabina, any names that is in Sanskrit or Indian or whatever so I can translate it in Thai and officially change my name!
