I love it but I think it is much too common. It isn’t nearly as bad as all the Emmas, Lilys, Madisons and Emilys though. GL!!

Sophia is already a very popular girls name. In fact it is on most lists for a top baby girls name. It is still pretty, but you will have a ton of other Sophia’s. It won’t be a unique name at all! There are tons of good unpopular names. Look on this webstite as well as others, there really are alot of names out there!

The SSA list of popular names is based on the entire country, so the popularity of certain names may differ from state to state. Sophia may not be as popular where you live. I wouldn’t worry about the popularity of the name if you love’s a gorgeous name!

It’s a great name and not overly common in my opinion. It’s like Olivia.. not many people are named this but eveyone goes oh yeah I heard of that name.. Classic.

you can check the ssa website for popularity by state and see what it is in the state you live, personally i don’t like sophia that much - it reminds me of a snob, or a poodle
