I don't really like Sonja. Sonia is a little bit prettier in my opinion, however also not my favourite. It has some overly childish vibe for me. I think Sofia is better.

Must be better having this name in Europe than in the USA. Here it's not even considered a white girl's name and I've never met another white Sonja in my life, not to mention how people always have to pronounce it Sawn-JUH (Ugh).

I love this name: its sound, and its spelling--Sonja is my favorite of all its variants. I also like that it means the same thing as Sophia, "wisdom," without being nearly so common (in America).

I love the way it's pronounced; it's so soft and makes me think of a girl who is sweet and is always laughing and smiling. My boyfriend wants to name his future daughter this, and he's of German heritage as well as I am. I like this spelling, too.

Red Sonja comic books. They take place in the same world as Conan.

Red Sonja is an unbeatable woman warrior who refuses to sleep with any man who cannot beat her in a duel, she purposely wears very skimpy armor to antagonize men who desire her.

Sonja is also a common Macedonian name. Letter N followed by J make up a letter NJ (as in NEw) in Slavic languages. It is pronounced the same as Sonia or Sonya, not Son-JA as in JAil.

Sonja was a character in the 2003 horror-action movie "Underworld." I'm not going to say so much about her, because it may ruin the movie for some who haven't seen it (what are you waiting for?)
