- Latin: The name of an ancient Italian tribe
The Sabines were an ancient tribe living in central Italy when Romulus and Remus founded the city of Rome. According to the mythology, Romulus arranges the abduction of the Sabine women to give them as wives to the mostly single male Roman citizens. Consequently a war breaks out, and in the end, the Sabines and the Romans combine to form one nation. Nowadays, Sabine is a glamorous French-sounding name that has yet to catch on with parents in the U.S., which just might make your Sabine one-of-a-kind.
