  • "My daughter is named Sofia Marie. I chose this spelling because it is tied to her Italian heritage. People will just have to get use to the spelling. Hopefully, the new Disney princess " Sofia The First" will make the spelling more mainstream. Sofia is soft and feminine meant for a beautiful girl. She is a very beautiful baby as everyone tells me. It's also the spelling of European royalty. Queen Sofia of Spain." Oct. 24, 2012: Report as inappropriate
