NATIVE NAME ROOT:
SOPHóS (Σοφός) SOPHíā / SOFíA (σοφῐ́ᾱ)
MEANING:
This is a female name derived from “sophíā / sofía (σοφία)”, the Greek word for "wisdom, knowledge, teaching, skill related to everyday life, sound judgment, prudence". In turn, the name is closely linked to the term “sophós (σοφός)”, meaning “clever, skillful, cunning, able, intelligent, wise, prudent”. Sophia, and other variants such as Sonia and Sonja, is a feminine given name in many areas of the world including Russia, Iran, Pakistan, and India. Sonja and Sonya are Russian variations of Sophia. The name was popularized by a 1917 bestselling novel “Sonia” by Stephen McKenna. It was used to represent the personification of wisdom and is also the name of an early Christian martyr. Sophia is one of the most popular names in the world and the most popular given name for girls in the US for 2012.
