    Re: Safina / Savina

    The sounds are nearly identical, but for some reason I much prefer Safina. Savina's not bad, and I still like it, but I like Safina much more. I don't think it'll get confused with Sophia because the o vowel sound is so important to the name- Saphia sounds completely different from Sophia to my ears and the o sound really makes the name full and dynamic and appealing to me. Safina reminds me more of Serafina, but I don't think they'll be confused as Serafina is so rare.
    I don't think Savina will be confused with Savannah, either. The "Anna" sound is so recognizable, as is the "Ina" sound, that I doubt people will mistake one for the other. I also like Savina a lot more than Savannah. It's much more sophisticated!
    As a side note, I really like Sabine and Sabina as well- I guess I'm just a fan of the family!

    I definitely like Savina better. Safina would get confused with Sophia I think. That being said, I like Sabina better than either name!
    Me + hubby = One prince and two little princesses <3 <3 <3. So in love with our family and our new little pink bundle!!

    I like Safina a little better because it reminds me of Josephina/Josefina, which I really like. I don't think it will be misheard as Sophia but might be misheard as Sabine/Sabina. Do you like Josephina/Josefina?

    Best wishes!

    I like them both, but I think I prefer Safina (which is strange, since I don't normally prefer names containing 'f'). Safina is actually very pretty, feels kind of exotic. It's like a simpler but equally pretty version of Serafina or Josephina. Me like : )
