I prefer Sophie.

Sophy is the English pet form of Sophia. It was commonly spelled this way in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Actually, the Sophy is a variety of rose, which has a pale pink colour. I was named after said rose, and I actually prefer this flower-name meaning to the stodgy, traditionally-associated "wisdom".

I prefer this to the overused Sophie.

Wait a second. This is listed as English and a variant of Sophie. Sophie is listed as French. So shouldn't this be listed as an English variant of Sophie?

I much prefer this to Sophie (which I don't think ages as well)--however, I still prefer both to Sophia.
I think Sophy is a great name that deserves to make a comeback.

This is an interesting spelling that has some appeal as it reminds me of the ending of philosophy-- well, philosophy is the love of wisdom and Sophie/Sophy means wisdom--but it would be annoying to correct people's spelling all the time. Sophie is prettier as well.
