Derived from Greek φιλόσοφος (philosophos) meaning "lover of wisdom", which consists of Greek φίλος (philos) meaning "friend, lover" combined with Greek σοφία (sophia) meaning "wisdom, cleverness". Also compare the related Greek word σοφός (sophos) meaning "skilled, clever". All in all, this given name is etymologically related to the English word philosopher.
