This is another gorgeous name I really love! :) It's so pretty, if I ever have a child and it's a girl in the future this is another name I'd use.

CHARACTER NAMING ALERT!
I personally loved the name. It had a perfect pinch of mystical mystery and beauty. Until everyone started using it as a witch name, for many witch character designs. You can't search for witch themes without a Sabrina name in it. I still see the beauty in it but man, once you read/hear the name billions of times, you go insane when someone mentions it.

So valuable information. There are many Sabrina witches already, so if you came on this site for it to inspire you to name a character you will not be so original with this name, if you intend on using it as a name for your character, be it in art or story writing alike. But I am not here to tell you what to do. It is your decision to do whatever you want! If you want to name your character Sabrina, you do it! But bear in mind this information I wrote. It may not be so favored in audiences when it's used regularly in many stories already.

So here's a TIP:
For many of my witch or cursed characters I use some mutation of my own coming from the dead language- Latin or plain Latin. It is even best when it has the meaning behind it as I searched for. Such as Florentia- meaning flourishing and add some surname Aiman- meaning "beauty of the moon" in the astrological, zodiac theme and you got yourself a fabulous name for a witch. Florentia Aiman.

In real life with real persons (which is sad, I love story people. Hehe get it?) I haven't heard it at all to be used and it is a very unique and beautiful name for a baby girl. Especially if she has that magic twinkle in her eyes. ;)

My mother's name is Sabrina.
I like it very much because it has a floral meaning.

After that it is commonly related with witches and this theme is so fascinating in my opinion.

Maybe I would use it as a middle name for a future daughter.
I like it very much, also without the link with my mother's name.

One of the possible origin of this name is from the Hebrew language.

In fact it comes from the Hebrew word "sabre" which is the cactus's fruit so it generally means "thorny but sweet".

They write that it has an English origin but it also has a strong middle eastern origin... Many Arabs, Pakistani's and Indian's have the name Sabrina/Sabreenha/Sabreena since Sabr in Arabic is Patience and in Hindu and Punjabi Sab means everything (I think).

The origin is actually Irish and the nymph's name was actually Sabrina she was not the girl being drowned by the king/her dad- I would know, my name is Sabrina.

I have loved Sabrina for a long time. The name has magical qualities to it ("Sabrina the Teenage Witch," Milton's "Comus," etc.) that I always find welcome. And, of course, there's "Sabrina Fair." :-)

I admit, though, that I have vacillated between loving this name enough to name a future daughter Sabrina, and thinking it might be too heavy for a real person (I have similar thoughts regarding Anastasia). But it appears that at least 355 new parents in 2015 didn't find it too "heavy" - and I love Morgana, too, so what am I doing, judging a name to be too "heavy"...?

For me, the only Sabrina I know is the Archie Comics character but, as I love Archie Comics, I wouldn't mind giving this name to any future daughter's. It is a medieval and melodious name, and sounds nice on anyone.

The name Sabrina comes from an old story of a King who had a daughter named Sabrina, that is why you hear the meaning Sabrina as "princess", she was the product of his and his mistress. He left his wife, the queen and she in turn declared war upon him and when she won she ordered that his mistress and their child (Sabrina) be drowned in the river... Sad but this is what the legendary meaning of the name Sabrina is derived from.

My daughter is called Sabrina. Her father chose the name, he's Portuguese. I wasn't fond of the name at first. I thought teenage witch, but I relented and I now am so pleased I did as it suits her. My youngest daughter calls her Nina, I call her Beenie. I found it to be a very well known name, but not often used, no other children in her school have the same name.

I only know one Sabrina, and she has dark hair and is very shy. I think the name suits her well.

My name is Sabrina, and I love it! I would not change it. I see it as spunky and medieval, and yeah I get comments like "Omg! Look, it's the teenage witch!" or "How does it feel to be a witch?" but whatever, you live with it, and I wouldn't change it.

I like Sabrina! :) It sounds spunky and witchy. It also gives me some medieval vibes. I think a Sabrina would make a beautiful sister to a Fiona and an Aurora.

I have a friend called Sabrina, and she swears it's also an Arabic name. She says it means "sweet", and she spells it "Sabreena".

@kvpp88 Yes, it is an Arabic name. Sabrina is related to the word Sabr which means "patience" in Arabic.

There's something about this name I don't like... I don't like the French name Sabine or Spanish name Sabina and Sabrina is almost identical to them. Not a pretty name to me at all.

Kind of reminds me of Sabrina the teenage witch or the Spanish word for cousin, "sobrina". But I still think it's a very pretty name :)

I like the name Sabrina. I doubt I would consider using it though. It seems like the only thing people think of when they hear this name is a goofy TV show. It's practically been stigmatized.

Sabrina is a beautiful name, and I wouldn't worry too much about the "Teenage Witch" connection because that'll be a faded memory by the time a baby Sabrina born now gets to school.
Sabrina and Serena are among the prettiest names for girls.

This is the kind of name someone trying too hard to give their daughter a unique name would use, only to find out that it's actually quite popular.

This is just an all around good name in my opinion. It's pretty, classy, elegant, with an air of mystery around it that I love. The world could use a few more Sabrinas.

Sabrina was the stage name of Norma Ann Sykes (b. 1936), who became a blonde and buxom British TV star around 1960, but has long since faded from view.
The name is seldom used in Britain otherwise.

This name is simply beautiful, how can anyone not love it?! It's got everything you could want in a name; it's unique without sounding forced, can be considered casual and formal, trendy yet classic and super feminine. I have a sister named Sabrina and everyone calls her Sassy or Nina which are also cute nicknames.

My name is Sabrina. I love it and always have. When I went to school I only met one other Sabrina, so I liked the uniqueness of it. However, people do often say, "Oh, Sabrina, like the witch?" They used to refer to the old TV series "Bewitched" that had a Sabrina in it, but now they mostly refer to the current show "Sabrina The Teenage Witch." You might want to think that over before naming your child it. Oh, and for the record I was named after one of the original "Charlies' Angels", not a witch.

Sabrina is my name and I love it. I would never ever want to change my name. I am very proud to be named after a princess.

It's a pretty name, but a bit too girly for my taste, and by ''girly'', I don't mean ''like the name of a little girl'', but rather that it's an ultra-feminine name. I almost see pink when I even think about this name. It sounds like the name of a girl who dresses up like a princess as a child, and grows up to wear frilly, pink skirts and has long, curled, blonde hair. The name also unfortunately reminds me of the dumber-than-a-box-of-rocks Sabrina Salerno, who had an annoying hit in the 80s.

I think Sabrina is a beautiful name, I think "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" won't even be remembered by the time I have children, and the film "Sabrina" is so beautiful and elegant. It's a lovely name.

From John Milton's Comus:
Sabrina fair,
Listen where thou art sitting
Under the glassy, cool, translucent wave,
In twisted braids of lilies knitting
The loose train of thy amber-dropping hair;
Listen for dear honour's sake,
Goddess of the silver lake,
Listen and save.

Sabrina is an Assyrian (Near Eastern) name meaning "hope" or "waiting". It is the feminine form of the male name Sabre or Sebre, which is derived from the word for patience, waiting and hope.
