Meaning:Wise, self-controlled
If you're looking to honor baby's Greek roots with a bigger-than-life name, lend an ear to Sophronia. This girl's respelling of Sophronius is of Greek origin and means "wise" and "self-controlled." With such a namesake, baby will always behave well beyond their years and hardly ever be fussy. You may have already surmised that Sophronia is the ancient form of Sophie or Sophia. Along with Ronnie, you've got some ready-made nicknames from the very start! This pick can also be found in the old children's book series The Five Little Peppers, featuring the youngest of the clan, known affectionately as Phronsie.
