Anther nice name. Sabrina is a pretty name. It’s an italian name, and goes well with her Italian last name mottola. Salma hayek’s daughter’s name Valentina is beautiful, and now Thalia gave her baby a nice name too. Nice to hear some pretty cute names lately, instead of names that sound more odd. Bet the baby is a beauty, congrats to them.

Sakaë–I don’t know what the umlaut above the “e” is for (¨), as that is not used in Japanese–would be pronounced “sa-ky-ay” with an even stress on each syllable, according to Japanese pronunciation (where “ky” rhymes with “my” and “ay” rhymes with “bay”).

I don’t know how they intend to pronounce it.

Sabrina is a beautiful name, but it doesn’t mean “princess” in English. It means “Sabrina” in English. According to behindthename.com,

“From the name of the Severn, a river in Wales, which was originally named Habren. In Celtic legend Sabrina was the name of a princess who was drowned in the Severn. Supposedly the river was named for her, but it is more likely that her name was actually derived from that of the river.”

So it’s actually a variant of a Welsh name. I don’t mean to be rude, but ambiguous name meanings really bug me.
