Savina is a feminine name of Latin origin, derived from name Sabina. This classic choice means “Sabine,” in reference to the Sabine people—a tribe from central Italy who lived during the period of history when Rome was established. Unfortunately, many of the Sabine women were kidnapped by the Roman army and forced into marriages with Roman citizens against their will. Savina has been seen as both a first name and a surname over the ages.
