Comments for the name Sonya


Comments for SONYA:

This is my name, and I love it. It's foreign, so it's a bit mysterious, it's unusual so I feel unique, it's pretty, classic, it ages well and it doesn't have an embarrassing meaning. My friends and family call me Son or Sonny, but a popular nickname for Sonya is Sunny which I also love.

I believe Sonya also derives from the Greek Sophia, which means wisdom.

In the novel "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoevsky, Sonya was a reluctant prostitute, the confessor of the main character (Rodya), and a symbol of the idea that suffering has redemptive power. The name Sonya was an alternative for the character's given name, Sofya.

With the popularity of the names Sophia and Sophie I am surprised this name hasn't increased in usage. I love the nickname Sonny/Sunny for this name.

I too have been blessed with the wonderful name Sonya. I think it's so lovely and soft. Whenever someone asks me my name I gently exhale "Sahn-ya". I'm proud of my name.

If you saw the series finale episode of "Mad About You", you'll always remember this name. The epsiode told the life story of Paul and Jamie Buchman's now-grown daughter, Mabel, in flashback. In the scene showing her as a snarling, confrontational twelve-year-old, Mabel, who was named by her grandmother as an mnemonic of Mothers Always Bring Extra Love, announces she is changing her name to Sonya, for Some Other Name, You A***.

I absolutely love this name. I am quite surprised that this name has not become popular. Oh well, maybe it will in the future.

This is a beautiful name pronounced ''SON-ya'', with a short 'o' that sounds like a proper 'o', not ''ah'' or anything, but ugly pronounced ''SAW-nya''. The former sounds sophisticated, the latter trashy and annoying.
