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:
and she and all of her 3 daughters were martyrs for the Christian faith.

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!

The Greek characters turned out all wrong. Sorry!

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.
