Origin:Pacific Islander
Meaning:Sit down
Saofa'i is a Pacific Islander girl’s name. A fitting name for an energetic little one, Saofa'i might just need a reminder to “sit down” every now and then. Over time though, Saofa'i may grow to appreciate a brief reprieve to take in the beauty of life. The feminine name is also the term used for a traditional ceremony when a new matai, or chief, is accepted by the rest. Saofa'i is often thought to be a form of the name Sophia, and could make for a beautiful cultural connection to baby's ancestry.
