Albin is also used in France (along with Aubin), both as a given name and as a patronymic surname.

As a patronymic surname, Aubin is more common in France than Albin, which appears to indicate that the given name Aubin has historically been more in use in France than Albin (especially during the Middle Ages). But as a given name, Albin is more common than Aubin, or at least has been since the 20th century.
