Historically Famous Sophies
Although Sophia has become a very popular name, the saints who bore it are generally forgotten or legendary, like the martyr who is supposed to have been the mother of St Faith and her sisters. Perhaps it is the meaning of the name, 'wisdom', which has brought it back into fashion, or maybe it is just the current craze for Victorian girls' names.
