I know it madly popular common at the mo but apart from that how do you like Sophie?
Thank you in advance flowers.

I love it and there aren't that many around here.

Lovely. Prefer it to the currently more popular Sophia, though that is nice too.

I think it is a lovely name smile

Not cutsie. It's classic and elegant. But it is extremely popular. I've got one (age 11) and I had three in the back of my car yesterday.

I don't have a problem with popular names at all, if they are classic, but I know some people do.

I was going to use it for my first but worried that there were too many around so chose a different name. before dd1 was 3 weeks old I had been introduced to two more babies with her name so I stuck with sophie for dd2. it's a really lovely name.

Really like it, and have always loved the old-fashioned spelling 'Sophy'.

Not too cutesy, but definitely too popular for my taste. As a primary teacher, I've had at least one (often more than one) in every class I've taught. Pretty name though.

Not cutesy at all, it is classic and elegant - I love it!
I have only ever met 2 - who will be 18 months and 30 now.
Cutesy names to me are more things like Millie, Kitty, Posy and Lola.
Sophie is FAR better than any of those.

Classic, feminine name. I have always liked it.

I don't think it's too cutesy. It's classic and pretty. I don't know any baby Sophies. I know a few in late 20's early 30's.

I used love it but simply can't get past Sally Webster shouting 'Soooofeee'. She has ruined the name for me.

My DD is a Sophie and I still love it. She is 27. I think she likes it too.

brandyandsummergloves Tue 18-Mar-14 23:13:03

My DD is a Sophie too and she's 25. She's in no way cutesy and would be horrified to be described as such. It's a lovely name I think (well I suppose I would as i used it as a name for my eldest dd)

BikeRunSki Tue 18-Mar-14 23:17:40

Lovely, classic name.
I only know one 2 yo Sophie, 1who is 7 and one in her 40s.

AberdeenAngusina Tue 18-Mar-14 23:17:58

Another vote for classic and elegant, rather than cutesy.

Lovely. I think it CAN sound cute, but also can sound strong, it depends who you match it to in your mind. Beautiful name, imo.

My 11week old is a Sophie.

Didn't realise it was currently so popular (pfb so not much contact with older children yet). However we struggled to agree on a name so would probably have used it even if we did realise it's popularity! Xx

JadziaSnax Wed 19-Mar-14 06:03:46

Definitely classy & elegant though 14 month old DD is more of a hurricane

Wuxiapian Wed 19-Mar-14 06:05:01

Very pretty name. Not too cutesy at all.

Boris13 Wed 19-Mar-14 06:18:34

I know one Sophie!

SaucyJack Wed 19-Mar-14 10:13:49

Nice name, but it's been done to death over the past 30 years.

squoosh Wed 19-Mar-14 11:06:59

I know hundreds of young Sophies, at least it feels as though I do.

I don't think it's cutsie but I do think it's so, so boring.

LoveVintage Wed 19-Mar-14 11:08:23

I love it, not cutsie at all. I also love Phoebe.

Blueberrybaby Wed 19-Mar-14 13:58:00

It's nice. Sophia tends to be more popular today, whereas Sophie is a name that seems to have been popular for decades. I know Sophie's under 10, in their teens, 20s and 30s. It's a bit like Emma I think, a modern classic. I don't think it is cutesy. Cutesy to me are names that don't cross over so well into adulthood so things like Molly, Milly, Maisie.
