I think it's a lovely name although it's hard to shorten it to something nice! It's origin is wisdom which is a beautiful meaning, much better than 'faithful' or 'peace bearer'!
-- Anonymous User  7/6/2005
I like the name Sophie. It's cute, dainty, sophisticated and lady-like. Its meaning is very strong, and I like names that mean 'faithful' or 'peaceful'. They have good meanings.

Being a Sophie myself, I do like the name but too many people these days are called Sophie! Over 200 in my school year alone! Also as a short form I get called Soss or Sossy, which is much better than Soph.

Well, not a FAMOUS bearer... Sophie from that horrible educational French show, Téléfrancais. Canadian elementary school students will probably know what I'm talking about.

You know Hauru no Ugoku Shiro and Howl's Moving Castle are the same things, right? The film was based off of the novel.

I'm a Sophie and proud of it. Not only do people see me as a lady-like, intellegent, friendly and kind, but it's also made me feel more attractive than I probably am. I love being a Sophie. (My close friends call me Soph, which I think is fine).
-- Cardwitch  12/10/2005

I named my daughter Sophie Abbigail. I love what Sophie means, and I think that it is a very classy name. I like Sophie better then Sophia. What is interesting is I did not know ANYONE named Sophie, and I had no clue that Sophie and Sophia were becoming very popular again.
-- Talisyn  5/19/2006
I adore this name. It's dainty but powerful at the same time. It makes me think of some tall, brooding and thoughtful medieval lady. It's also the name of my dog. *cough*

I think Sophie is an ugly, unfeminine name. It is something I would name my dog, not my child. I can’t believe that this name is becoming so popular given how unattractive it is. I am not a big fan of Sophia either, although I do feel that it’s a nicer, more feminine name than Sophie. Sophie without the “a” at the end just sounds incomplete. Sophie also sounds very young and childish, like Carrie or Katie. I can’t image a mature grown women, especially a professional women, wanting to be named Sophie.

My name is Sophie and I love being a Sophie. I wouldn't give it to my child because it's mine, but I'm happy being a Sophie because it makes me feel cheerful, sweet, dainty, friend and funny to my friends. Trouble is, there are too many Sophies in the world now!

Sophie is such a feminine name. It makes me think of a cute woman who is confident yet able to be girlish.
-- dreamer_x  2/5/2007
I don't like "Sophie". It sounds so soft and girly in a way I hate it. Like 'Mia'. I think Sophia or Sofia is better, because it sounds whole.
-- 7up  2/10/2007
Nevermind, I think Sophie is pretty.
-- 7up  3/1/2007
I absolutely adore the name Sophie. I think it's beautiful in every way. Its simplicity is enchanting enough to forget about its over-bearing popularity all over the world. I imagine a girl with a wondeful creative talent and an extraordinary personality. I really hope this will be one of my daughter's names one day! =D.

I love this name! It's perfectly adorable, although I probably wouldn't name my child this because it sounds almost a tad too feminine for me. But I recommend it just the same! =]

The character in the book Red Glass, by Laura Resau is named Sophie. This version to me doesn't sound as strong as Sophia (Sophie in the book is doubtful and scared often) but she changes over the course of the story. I think it works great, though, at any age. I especially think it's a great name for cats.

Sophie is my full name, and I think it's so pretty. However, I get a little annoyed when people assume my real name is Sophia, or call me Sophia. I also hate it when people have the same name as me, so I wish it was more uncommon. But otherwise I love it!
-- Peachie  4/28/2008
Whatever! This name is gorgeous! It's so much better than Sophia I think. Really feminine and pretty. Not to mention sweet and sophisticated as well! I love Sophie!

Her most famous novel is "Les Malheurs de Sophie" (Sophie's Misfortunes), in which the principal character, a little girl called Sophie, is inspired from the author's childhood.
-- Marie-Amelie  5/18/2008
Sophie is the kind of name a child gets when her parents want something tritely pretty and are too uncreative to think of anything better. Somehow it's like the fat, stupid version of Sophia.
-- gio2475  6/4/2008
The word sophisticated springs to mind when I hear this name. Yes, I like it. It has an upperclass sort of sound to it without being too pretentious. I like it better than Sophia as it sounds more English. Sophia is a bit "try hard" and faddish at the moment. Sophie to me is the classic original.
-- miriam_grace  6/26/2008

-- BellamynSora  6/1/2009
This name has an innocent tone to it. When pronounced, I just picture some joyful girl growing up into a nice life. It's a name you give your daughter in hopes of her achieving the best in life. At least I would think so.

I like this name a lot and am very much considering naming my future daughter this.
-- BlueSalvation  11/5/2009
My parents named me Sophie because my dad went to the Sophia University (no idea why they didn't name me Sophia) and because Sophie means "wisdom". I like my name, and I am the only person in my grade with this name. However, it is becoming increasingly popular, and I like to be unique.

Sophie is an increasingly popular name for dogs, especially, for some reason, Labrador retrievers. Something to consider before you give it to your baby (or your puppy!)
-- elizabeth hamlet  12/7/2009
It doesn't matter if it's popular for dogs to me. As a matter of fact, it's irrelevant to me. Though, I'm sure people with your mind set would tease those that have the name Sophie.

One of my best friend's is called Sophie and it suits her perfectly. She lives up to its meaning as she is very wise! It's a very soft, sweet name, but maybe it's a bit too popular at the moment.

My name is Sophie. It's a comfy generic name and you wont be teased for it however it is super popular and I think it's gonna stay super popular by the looks of it! Overall it's OK but not very unique. Probably if I hadn't gone through school as Sophie. H for 15 years I would like it better.
-- Isabella Maria  8/12/2010
I'm not too fond of Sophie as a real, full name. It sounds kind of ditzy. And while I can picture it on a young girl and an elderly woman, I can't really picture it on a middle aged woman. I would prefer to name my daughter Sophia and nickname her Sophie, so she has a regal, elegant name to fall back on when she gets older, with the cute nickname Sophie. Sophie by itself just does not seem very sophisticated.
-- Chrila96  2/15/2011
Much earlier on this thread, I wrote that I wished this were my own name. Later that year (not too much later, actually, now that I think of it) I did legally change my name to Sophya, but I am called Sophie by almost everyone. I have found it to be a wonderful choice despite its popularity - I actually like my name now, which, y'know, is always a plus...
-- Saffine Grace  3/27/2011
Sophie is an absolutely precious, beautiful, adorable name with a great meaning. I'm planning on using it for my second daughter.

It has been kind of overused recently, but for good reason (unlike, say, Nevaeh)! I actually like it a bit more than Sophia, not sure why.
-- Bunko0  8/5/2011
I LOVE the name Sophie for a girl. It's spunky, fun, old fashioned yet modern feeling, and works on all personality types. It's one of my favorite names. I prefer this to Sophia. Not sure why I just can't bring myself to liking that name more than Sophie.

Sophie Chotek (1868-1914) was the wife of Austrian archduke Franz Ferdinand. She was assassinated along with her husband. Sophie also gave her name to her daughter.
-- Buneary  1/12/2013
I like this more than the overused Sophia (unless you're Italian, don't name your daughter Sophia! It's ridiculous!) it was popular in the late 1800's-early 1900's, and then it was off the top 1000 for a long time, which I find interesting. It's gaining again popularity now, probably why most people named Sophie are either little girls or old women. Overall, it's a cute name, and although it sounds childish, it's been around for ages and hasn't just been "thought up" recently like a lot of names... So it can suit any age :)
-- Anonymous User  1/28/2013
One of my favorite names. I also like Sophia, but the name Sophie, I don't know... it just appeals to me more. Pairs well with many middle names, works on all ages, and a lot of good historical figures and book characters to give it a good connotation.

Although Sophie is a lovely name, and I can't argue with that, I think it is so common. There are seven sophies in my year at school and there are so many people outside of my school who are also called Sophie. I can understand why parents would like to name their daughter Sophie, but I would never name one of my future children Sophie.
-- Anonymous User  7/25/2013
Sophie is a PERFECT name. That's why it's popular.
Being elegant and modern, I will choose this name for my little girl.
Do you remember the children at school with uncommon names and how difficult it was for others to pronounce them, purely because they are unheard of. Sophie's of the playground will not have that problem.
They will easily find their name at stationary shops :)
Which little girls love to do.
