It's weird... I feel like Sarah is pretty much the most uncreative name you can come up with (though I like Sara), Serena is just a slightly uglier version of Selena (I know, the origin is different and all, but it just sounds harsh and weird), Serafina is nice, but too pretty, if that makes sense, Sally is just plain bad (but that's mainly because most Sally's I've known have been jerks), and just in general that all the Sarah names aren't great except for Sadie, which I love, but Sarina is AWESOME! It's so much different from Serena, somehow. It's serious, pretty, individual, uncommon, and just plain awesome.

I hate Serena, but love Sarina. I don't know how I differentiate the two names so separately (everyone thinks I'm saying the same thing), but they're so different in my mind. To honor a Sarah, choose Sadie, Sarina, or any variant of Selene.

This is my name Sarina, I love my name it's not a common name and the spelling too. I like it spelled this way more than Serena. I do have to spell my name out a lot because people usually think its spelled Serena. I tell them it's spelled like Sabrina without the b.

Wait a minute, Sarina is a DIMINUTIVE of Sarah? What happened? I thought that Sarah was a diminutive of Sarina! Interesting...

The name Sarina is also in use in the Netherlands, and it has been since at least the year 1882. The Dutch name database called "Corpus of First Names in The Netherlands" (http://www.meertens.knaw.nl/nvb/english) lists the name as being derived from the name Sara, but given the fact that by 1882 the Dutch were already long familiar with combining names, it cannot be ruled out that in at least some cases, the name Sarina is a combination of Sara with any feminine name ending in -ina, such as Hendrina, Martina and Wilhelmina.

Right now, the best known Dutch bearer of this name is probably Sarina Wiegman (b. 1969), a former professional soccer player who recently became head coach of the Dutch national women's soccer team.

Last but certainly not least, the name is pronounced as sah-REE-nah in Dutch.

When I first saw this name I loved it, especially the meaning. But I thought it was pronounced Saarin-a, which I like better than that "Serena" pronunciation, so now I don't like it as much.

Contrary to what the entry states, this name is not a combination name at all; it is Persian and means 'pure'.

I love this name, and I much prefer the spelling Sarina over Serena. It just looks more feminine spelled this way. I would definitely consider using this name for my daughter. It's pretty, feminine, and I like the fact that it’s not very popular or overused.
