Sophia, phonetically, sounds very good and can be associated with "intelligence", however, I once read a sentence of Shakespear "that slew the Sophie and a Persian princes". It seems Sophie has a negative connotation to some degree. I am not a native English speaker, so I am a little confused.
I like the name, Sophia. Sounds Greek doesn't it?
Sophia comes from the Greek word for knowledge, or wisdom. Hence, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul--meaing "Holy Wisdom."
Yeah, it's a great name for a girl, and i especially like the French form of the name--Sophie.
I like the name Sophia - in Scandinavia also spelled Sofia.
The nameday in Sweden is the 15th of May.
We have had three queens by the name of Sofia.
31st of December 2005 there were 86 318 females with the name Sofia/Sophia either as first name or middle name in Sweden.
Worked for me--at least with the movie 'Boy on a Dolphin"
She looks a bit weighty there.
