Meaning & History

Romanization of So-Ra. So-ra is an indigenous Korean name, a single two-syllable word meaning "conch shell".
It is one of a number of such native names (called 고유어 이름) that have become more popular in South Korea in recent decades. In some cases, however, parents also choose to register hanja to represent the name, picking them solely for their pronunciation (for example, 曙羅, with hanja meaning "sunlight" and "net", respectively). There are 45 hanja with the reading "so" and 14 hanja with the reading "ra" on the South Korean government's official list of hanja which may used in given names.
