What are some names that could get to the nickname Sophie, besides Sophia? Either built-in or more subtle (sorry, I don't know how to say it any other way. lol). I love both Sophia and Sophie, but they're way too popular on their own.
I don't like Sophronia (because of the strong O sound near the end) or Sapphire/Sapphira. Saffron doesn't do it for me either because it reminds me of that flavored rice I love eating for dinner sometimes. XD My tastes lean mostly towards uncommon classic names.
I love Seraphina, but I don't feel right about using it because my sister is named Sarah and our relationship isn't a very close one.
