Comments for ALBERTINE:

Albertine is used seldom in France currently, because Albert is considered a very masculine name. In fact the only time I saw it, it was in a book by Proust. Albertine in this novel is a young woman the narrator's in love with, and lives with for a time, before she dies, quite young.

Albertine is darling.

I agree, Albertine is very rare. It might be the name of a very old woman.

This name has also been used frequently in the Netherlands before the 1980s - nowadays, it is not used often anymore because it is mostly regarded as old-fashioned. Still, one would most likely find this name in the Dutch top 1000 for all ages.

There are two possible pronunciations for Albertine in Dutch. One is ahl-bər-TEE-nə (which is often used in the north) and the other is ahl-bər-TEEN (which is often used in the south).

This is my middle name, and I am born in 1996. I used to hate it before, because I didn't know anybody else with that name, but now I think it is okay.
