From your list, I like Isabel the best with Sabrina (and I love that particular spelling of Isabel BTW).  

I always tend to lump Sabrina and Miranda together.  Maybe you'd like Miranda?

Some other ideas I think would work-Clarissa, Gabrielle, Audrey, Amelia, Violet, Julianne, Miriam & Ruby.

Tabitha is also a nice fit, though Sabrina & Tabitha might be too witchy to use together.

That's so funny you said that about "witchy" cause I love Tabitha but my girlfriend said along with Sabrina it sounds like two witch sisters LOL! I like Gabrielle, I just don't like "Gabby" as a nickname. Thank you for the suggestions!

Gabrielle could also be nicknamed Bri or Elle or Ella. :-)

I don't know if you even liked it, but I would definitely strike Clarissa from that list unless you are a HUGE Melissa Joan Hart fan. Her two biggest roles were the eponymous characters in Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and Clarissa Explains It All :)

That's funny, because before I read this I was going to write that I knew two sisters at school called Sabrina and Tabitha!  Maybe Tara or Tallulah would be a less-witchy alternative?

I always think of Audrey Hepburn with Sabrina, so for me it's a romantic name with a spring in its step.

That makes me like Lily for a match over Isabel, though I do like Isabel, especially with this spelling. Kaia just doesn't work with Sabrina for me, though it's a nice name.

My one issue with the list is that Lily and Isabel are much more popular than Sabrina, but perhaps that's of no matter. A few other thoughts....Vanessa, Jillian, Giselle, Melissa, Marcella, Jocelyn, Camilla

I like Maxwell/Max very much with Sabrina. Modern sound with old school charm.

Not sure what other boys' names I'd naturally pair with Sabrina, but Max and Quinn as a pair would make me suggest Wyatt, Tate, Cole, Charlie, Sam, Gage, Jack, Parker.....

The movie Sabrina is actually where I got the idea for my daughters name!

I think Audrey and Sabrina would be fantastic sibling names, now that they've been mentioned in the same sentence.

Cosima (does this sound too rhyme-y with Sabrina?)

Emerald

Mirabel

Romilly

Laurel

 

Boys:

Elias

I love Sabrina!  If you like Lily, might I interest you in Lilia?  

Max and Quinn are both nice for boys, but they do make for a very...light? adorable? twee? -sounding sibset.  (I realize this is totally subjective, and I may be the only one who would think of the names this way!  Also, it's possible I'm the only one who objects to sets of names that are TOO adorable.)  Names that others have suggested: Julian, Oliver, Graham, etc. might give a little more weight to the siblings.

Love your suggestion of Julian as a boy name to go with Sabrina.  Graham is also great.

Thank you guys so much for all the great suggestions! Any opinions on the name Kaia? Nobody mentioned it, but he/she was conceived in Hawaii :) so I was thinking it would be cute. Is it too trendy to go with Sabrina?

I personally would not want to be named after or in connection with where I was conceived. That's not a picture I want in my head, especially not every time somebody says my name!

Congratulations! The first thing that came to mind is that all of names on your current list, excepting Kaia, are more popular and of-the-moment than Sabrina; that's something many namers care about though there's no reason you have to.

Of your boy options, I'd pick Max over Quinn. Like a previous poster, my bias is to want a name with a little more heft (not that this has to be your priority) and Max while still cute gets the edge for having more history. You should also be aware that Quinn is on the rise for girls and decide how you feel about your son having a gender-ambiguous name. I especially like the suggestions of Alex, Colin, Elias, Jasper, Julian, Lucas, Miles, and Oliver, with runners-up Samuel and Simon (if you don't mind matching initials), and will also toss into the mix Andrew, Anthony, Archer, Austin, Bennett, Connor, Eric, Evan, Isaac, Kyle, Leo, Mark, Nicholas, Otto, Owen, Paul, Reid, Rowan, Silas, Theo, Trevor, Victor, Wesley and Zachary.

From your girl list, I really like Isabel (especially this spelling) with Sabrina: the similar sounds and rhythm are harmonious yet nicely distinct. Lily also ties in nicely with sister's middle name Rose, and I like the idea of both kids having a nature reference, but Lily feels a bit "light" next to Sabrina. The combination Isabel Lily doesn't flow the best for me because the Ls run together, but how about Isabel Violet, Isabel Ruby or Isabel Wren?

As for Kaia, it's fine but doesn't especially grab me and without any context I wouldn't peg it as Hawaiian (unlike say, Leilani, Maile, Malia or Noelani). That's not necessarily a bad thing. I probably wouldn't want my name to be after where I was conceived either; while that's not exactly what you're doing here and having a connection to the place isn't nearly so problematic in principle, I can imagine that your daughter, knowing the reason, might find it awkward to field likely chit-chat about why she has a Hawaiian name when she's not from Hawaii. A less obviously Hawaiian choice would spare her that. I still might be more inclined to use your Hawaiian name in the middle slot though. Is there a reason Kaia especially spoke to you? I know the boys' name Kai means "sea" in Hawaiian, so perhaps it's a feminine version of that. For that matter, have you thought about putting Kai on your boy list? Traditionally Hawaiian names tend to be very long and most include nature references.

You've gotten some great girl name suggestions already. Particularly good matches I think are Audrey, Imogen, Jillian, Miranda, Miriam, Phoebe, Romilly, Ruby, Vanessa and Violet. I'll also offer you Adrienne, Alison, Angelie, Ardith, Bethany, Claire, Colette, Cora, Daphne, Deirdre, Eden, Gwendolyn, Juliet, Larissa, Madeleine, Maeve, Marguerite, Meredith, Paige, Rebecca, Renata, Rhiannon, Simone, Victoria and Vivian.

Hope that helps!
