Is Sophia a rare name?

Answered by Frank Schwing

In my personal experience, I have known quite a few girls named Sophia, so I wouldn’t say it is a rare name. However, when it comes to popularity rankings, Sophia is definitely a very popular name for baby girls. In fact, it was the 6th most popular girls’ name in 2021.

According to the data, there were 12,496 baby girls named Sophia in 2021. This means that approximately 1 out of every 142 baby girls born in that year were named Sophia. This is quite a high number and indicates that the name is quite common.

On the other hand, when it comes to baby boys, the name Sophia is extremely rare. In 2021, there were only 10 baby boys named Sophia. This means that approximately 1 out of every 186,065 baby boys born in 2021 were named Sophia. So, if you are looking for a unique name for a baby boy, Sophia might be a good choice.

It can be concluded that Sophia is a very popular name for baby girls, but quite rare for baby boys. If you are considering naming your child Sophia, you can expect to meet other girls with the same name, but it is unlikely that you will come across many boys with this name.
