Reply to: Sophia pronounced "so-FYE-a." Really? by Kate
I'm having lunch on Sunday with a 25-year-old Sophia who is and has always been so-FYE-a, to the extent that her childhood nickname was Fya, like fire without the r; pretty good as she's a redhead.

Here in South Africa we are very used to Afrikaans-speaking Sophias, or of course Sofias, sounding like so-FEE-a and English-speaking ones sounding like so-FYE-a. This could I suppose change as American TV becomes more ubiquitous ...
