Sofie is a feminine name of Greek origin rooted in the word sophía, meaning "wisdom." For the Ancient Greeks, sophía resembled cleverness and skill, forming the very foundation and make-up of philosophy. In its original form, philosophía means "a love of wisdom" and was wholeheartedly embraced by many from the time of Plato, including Socrates and Aristotle. Those who sought to share their wealth of knowledge were known as Sophists and were often learned teachers in various disciplines. Much like the intellect, sophía has since adapted and evolved into many beloved names, including Sophie and Sophia. And so Sofie springs forth, brimming with intellectual might wrapped up in soft syllables worthy of adoration.
