原I have named my daughter Sofia, who was born in April this year. Personally, I absolutely love it. I think it is beautiful and sounds lovely with her middle name (Rose). I don't know any other people or anyone else who has had a baby called Sofia or Sophia!
原The spelling Sofia doesn't make it "Greeker" than Sophia, as some people seem to think, because the letter Φ in ΣΟΦΙΑ (and in many many other Greek names) is and has been for centuries transliterated as PH. There's nothing wrong with "F", but it's not more accurate.
原My name is Sofia and I have always loved it! However I hate the nickname Sofie and the alternate spellings. I also used to love that my name was unique, but now it seems like every kid in America is named Sophia or Sofia! Also I look EXACTLY like Sofia the first princess on the kids channel. People tell me that they think the character is based off me! :( but I love the name! Just not the things that come with it!
原I was really starting to like this name (we were looking for Russian/Serbian names that didn't sound too out of place in the US), and find it unfortunate that it has become so popular (I prefer unique).
原If you really love the name Sofia, of course use it for your daughter, but just be aware that you are in no way being original when you do so. I am a teacher and I have taught more Sofias than any other name (including Sophias). I think parents believe it is unique - not so.
原This name derives from the Greek word: ΣΟΦΙΑ=wisdom. In Istanbul is the famous Christian Orthodox church: Saint Sofia-Hagia Sofia. (still museum, not allowed to be church!). Bulgarian capital has the same name.
原A friend of mine is called Sofia. For short we call her Soft. I myself like Sophia better because it's the original name but in my country it isn't allowed in this spelling. I'm naming my future daughter Sofia.
原It seems really weird to me that a lot of the 'personal impression' comments disparage a name's history and origin because of a spelling preference. It makes complete sense to use Sofia instead of Sophia if you are not French or did not want to use the French spelling. Sofia, if you read the origin notes, is the spelling that makes sense in a lot of other languages like German and Bulgarian. Why is that 'stupid' or 'ugly'?
原This is one of my middle names and my newest cousin's first name, but I don't know if I like Sofia or Sophia better. For some reason I find the "ph" very graceful and less harsh than the look of the "f" even though they're pronounced the same. It's not to say that I don't like my name or my cousin's, I just don't like the look of it so much.
原My best friend's name is Sofia, and I think it's an absolutely BEAUTIFUL name. She hates any nicknames, like 'Sofa'. She also hates it when people think her name is 'Sofie' or has a 'ph'. I prefer this spelling WAY more than 'Sophia'.
原Today in Italy Sofia is one of the most popular names: 7th in 2004 and 3rd in 2006, behind Giulia and Sara. It would not be surprising if it increased again and reached the first place. Nowadays one can ask everyone, everyone will say it's wonderful, amazing, the ideal name for a girl.On the other hand, Sofia was not so common in the 20th century, in spite of the great popularity of the actress Sofia Loren.
原I agree with the above comment--all of the classic names are becoming over-used, and it's a little sad. I didn't use to like this name very much, but now I like it a lot. Famous bearer: Sofia Coppola.
原My name is Sofia (everyone calls me Sofie), and I have always been fond of my name growing up. It was unique and attractive. A very memoriable name that earned me the nickname of "Soap" (love it!). I also love the French pronunciation! On the other hand, the problems I have are:1. The fact that everyone assumes it's spelt with a 'ph' in place of an 'f'and2) How common it is among pre-teens nowadays and how a variation of "Sofia", "Sophia", is the third most popular female name for 2005! Yuck! Will it be the next "Jessica"?
原This is one of the prettiest names EVER! It's very simple and charming. I've heard somewhere that Sofia means wisdom. I think it's prettier when you spell it "Sofia", and not "Sophia". I think "Sophia" is too Americanized, when the name is Greek.
原Sofía Margarita Vergara Vergara is a Colombian-American actress and model. Vergara rose to prominence while co-hosting two television shows for Spanish-language television network Univisión in the late 1990s. Her first notable acting job in English was in the film Chasing Papi. Subsequently, she appeared in other films, including Four Brothers and two Tyler Perry films: Meet the Browns and Madea Goes to Jail, receiving an ALMA Award nomination for the latter. Vergara's success on television has earned her roles in films The Smurfs, New Year's Eve, Happy Feet Two, The Three Stooges, Escape from Planet Earth, Machete Kills, Chef, and Hot Pursuit. In 2012, 2013, and 2016, she was the top-earning actress on US television.
原Sofía Gala Castiglione, usually referred to as Sofía Gala, is an Argentine actress. Daughter of the iconic Vedette Moria Casán and producer Mario Castiglione, Sofía Gala grew up in the dressing rooms of revues, during the filming of Alberto Olmedo and Jorge Porcel's films, and in the backstage gossip television shows. As a teenager, Castiglione generated controversy by posing nude with her mother at age 13, and dating a 38-year-old man when she was 15.
原I once read a book based on a true story where the main character was a little girl named Sofia. I cannot remember the name of the book or the author, sadly, but I remember that Sofia was trapped in a war-torn land and she was brave and beautiful. I love this spelling, much more than Sofia and the meaning is just lovely. I like it as a first name, nickname Sofie or as a middle name. Liliana Sofia or maybe Audrey Sofia.
原Whoever said that 'philosophy' means 'kissing the wisdom' is wrong. The Greek 'philos' (öéëïó) means 'friend or lover of', not kissing or whatever it is you wrote. It's the root for the suffix -phile (bibliophile means lover of books, Anglophile means lover of England, et cetera).I just read over this and I realized I sound very cruel and mean. I'm not trying to! Sorry!
原Since my real name is Sofia, I have several things to say about this. The word "sofia" in Greek means "wisdom". It is a totally and originally Greek word and it is the second part of the word "filosofia" or else "philosophy". Ancient Greeks refered to "philosophy" as "kissing the wisdom" (filo=kissing, ti=the, sofia=wisdom) which means getting in touch with wisdom and being in favour of it.Saint Sofia in Christian Orthodox Church was a woman who had 3 daughters named:Elpida=HopePisti=FaithAgapi=Loveand she and all of her 3 daughters were martyrs for the Christian faith.
