All beautiful options and hard to pick between! I would ask whether any of the associated nicknames would make any difference to how you felt about them? Imo, Sab, Jules, Cassie? I know we often pick names not planning to use a nickname but often these are adopted by friends/family etc so I wouldn’t pick a name if I didn’t like an obvious nickname for it.

I think I would lean towards Sabrina but I do have a love for the nickname Cassie so could be tempted by Cassandra too.

Leaning towards Sabrina because it is a bit more unusual but my second choice would be Juliet.

I really love all of those names.

I would maybe err on the side of Sabrina (and because I love the film with Audrey H) or Cassandra as they're more unusual. Cassandra will inevitably be shortened to Cassie so bear that in mind.

I like Sabrina. Well known but not overused, has a bit of zhuzh, works well internationally. I love the Audrey Hepburn film too.

Juliet is the best one but it's getting popular at the moment.

Sabrina reminds me of the witch.

Imogen a million times over, I love it. Nn Mo or Mimi if you're looking to avoid Immy.

The others are perfectly lovely but a tad frilly for me personally.

Imogen and Juliet are lovely.

Sabrina the Teenage With and Cassandra are too over the top for me.

Imogen reminds me of the Waitrose gooseberry and cinnamon yogurt sketch.

I prefer Julia to Juliet, that or Cassandra would be my pick. Imogen is too popular and I don’t like Sabrina.

Nice list. I have a soft spot for Cassandra as I think it's a spectacular name whilst being well known and I love Cass and Cassie. Whilst nice, I don't think I'd like to be called Juliet as I think it would be tricky to live down in the same way as being called Romeo. I think Julia is quite nice. I know a Juliana too. Which is nice. I just think Romeo and Juliet is so studied at school it might be embarrassing for a teen. I don't like Immy at all though imogen's quite nice. I feel I should like Sabrina more than I do. As there is a lot of Shakespeare here I do quite like Rosalind.
