This is a prettier spelling of Sonya. The name sounds nice, as long as it isn't pronounced too nasally and with too long a vowel sound on the first syllable.

Well I always have liked my name Sonia because it is not weird but it is uncommon. It is nice to be the only Sonia in your school growing up.

My name is Sonia, and while I used to like my name, at this point in time I cannot recommend naming your child or yourself this. People never had too much trouble with my name until Sophia became more popular. Everyone calls me Sophia now, and I have to correct them over and over. It's become so grating (on top of the ugly, nasal mispronunciation "Sahn-yuh" that I still get, *and* all of the misspellings) that I'm changing my name. Sonia is a pretty enough name, and I've gotten many compliments on it. But until the thing for Sophia dies down, I wouldn't use it unless you want to subject your child to extreme annoyance once everyone's little Sophias are in class together with her/him/them.

Edit: When I do get it through to people that my name is Sonia, Sonya Blade is always brought up. I'm so sick of MK references.

Sonia Rodriquez, she's the sweet, kind and independent character in the book The Secret life of Sonia Rodriguez. She's the modern day Cinderella and try to overcome the burden of being a Mexican American. She's a great example for most immigrants.

This was the name of one of my great aunts. I really like it, but everyone spells Sonia as Sonya. Sonya looks vulgar and terrible. I believe she was named after a Ukrainian figure skater named Sonia. It's a really unique name I have yet to meet a Sonia. (my great aunt died before I was born.)
