I love Sofia. I myself am Polish, have a sis called Zofia (mostly called Zofijka), and she loves Spain, Spanish language, Spanish pop and dance music, Argentina, anything to do with Argentina. Because of that, I often call her Sofia, this Spanish version of her name suits her very well, also because I myself speak Swedish and this is one of my favourite languages, and Sofia's incredibly popular in Sweden too, just the I is written differently. I also like to call her Fia, or even Via, just because it's cool, or Sofi, Soffi-Toffi, Soffifee, or Vivi, which as I've been told can be a Swedish/Finnish nickname for Sofia/Sohvi. I think the name Sofia, no matter how the I is written (I can't write accents on the device I'm writing from), and no matter in which language, is a really beautiful, charming and feminine name, soft but with some dynamism to it. When I think about this name I think that every Sofia has to be a very charming, lovable person, and that it is impossible to not like her, she's sweet and funny, and bubbly, even if a little shy at times, she loves other people and is very chatty when she feels safe.

This my name and I love it! Though in my country (Mexico) it's becoming way too popular; I encounter more than 10 Sofías in one day.

I once read a book based on a true story where the main character was a little girl named Sofia. I cannot remember the name of the book or the author, sadly, but I remember that Sofia was trapped in a war-torn land and she was brave and beautiful. I love this spelling, much more than Sofia and the meaning is just lovely. I like it as a first name, nickname Sofie or as a middle name. Liliana Sofia or maybe Audrey Sofia.

Since my real name is Sofia, I have several things to say about this. The word "sofia" in Greek means "wisdom". It is a totally and originally Greek word and it is the second part of the word "filosofia" or else "philosophy". Ancient Greeks refered to "philosophy" as "kissing the wisdom" (filo=kissing, ti=the, sofia=wisdom) which means getting in touch with wisdom and being in favour of it.

Saint Sofia in Christian Orthodox Church was a woman who had 3 daughters named:
and she and all of her 3 daughters were martyrs for the Christian faith.

Whoever said that 'philosophy' means 'kissing the wisdom' is wrong. The Greek 'philos' (öéëïó) means 'friend or lover of', not kissing or whatever it is you wrote. It's the root for the suffix -phile (bibliophile means lover of books, Anglophile means lover of England, et cetera).
I just read over this and I realized I sound very cruel and mean. I'm not trying to! Sorry!
