I love Sofie! My sister's name is Zofia (we're Polish) and I've never liked this name nor any of its conventional nicknames like Zosia. Now she's 10 and also doesn't like it, so we're inventing lots of other names for her. I regularly call her Sofie and spell it mostly this way. Sometimes I also tend to spell it Sophie, but I think the spelling with f is more elegant and fits her more. I also often call her Sofia/Sophia and also like the spelling Sofia more. Sometimes I spell it just Sofi or pronounce SAW-fee instead of so-FEE. I like the nickname Fee or Fie or Fi or Fifi for Sofie and also use it for her and it's very charming and fits her soooo much. Sometimes I call her Sofij(k)a (saw-FEE-y(k)ah) which I think could also work as a more original nickname for a Sofie, or with Z instead of S. I've found out somewhere that Vivi is a Swedish diminutive of Sofia and although I'm not really sure if it's true we've also adopted it for our Vivi. Sofie has such a delicate, fresh sound I like this "fi" in it the most I guess. When I'm pissed off by my Sofie I call her sofa. We also have tons of more creative nicknames like Sofilator, Sofisha, Sofie Toffi, Sofie Fee and so on.

Sophie used to be my favorite girl's name, but now I much prefer Sofie. It isn't as common here in the US, but I think it looks a lot prettier with the "f" than the "ph." Same for Sophia and Sofia.

I just love it! My mom's name is Sonia and I want to name my future daughter after her and this is a perfect name, since my family is Scandinavian and German!

This is my name and I rather like it, even though it's kind of annoying having to constantly correct people who spell it S-o-p-h-i-e.

A common nickname for Sofie is also Sofoula.

The German pronunciation given by btn.com is wrong. Certainly, there MIGHT be Germans who pronounce Sofie "ZO-fee", but in general, we say: "zoh-FEE", emphasizing the second syllable. [noted -ed]
