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.

Beautiful name, this was my great aunts name. The 'Y' is to trendy and common! This name works for every age and isn't common without being wierd. Its just so classic and modern at the same time! This name is one of my favorites.

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.)

This is my daughter's name but she goes by Sonnie. She's a 4 year old red-head and won't tolerate being called Sonia... maybe when she's older.

In 1989, at an international competition in Capri, Rodriguez won the Enrico Cecchetti award, and the following year she returned to Canada to join the National Ballet of Canada.

Beautiful name, and currently underused. I adore Sonia, and feel that, along with Sylvia and Sylvie, it is the perfect alternative to Sophia and Sophie, if you love those names, but are reluctant to use them because of their popularity. Sonia would also be a great Tanya/Tania alternative.
