Thanks, I understand ... such 1% occurrences do happen if you quote numbers often, well, about once every hundred times :-) That was a side issue.

What had confused me primarily was that you probably meant that two rare names Sabina and Sabrina were being confused, where as I misread the pragmatics of your sentence and concluded that you meant that the rare name Sabrina was being confused with a more common name Sabina.

That was confusing, because, if any significant number (say more than 50) of the 1644 people listed as Sabina's were actually Sabrina's (and none confused the other way), then Sabrina was more common than Sabina!
