Have you heard this name?
I've been looking through family heritage names for inspiration and came across what I think is a lovely gem that is not currently in the database. What I love about this name is how it fits in with recent naming trends and also has THREE...yes...THREE adorable nicknames. Ready for it...
Sophie, Annie, Ana, (and even Rhianna?)
What do you think? To me it falls nicely in the the Greek revival category along with Sophia, Penelope, Phoebe, Chloe, Zoe crowd. I don't think it is actually a Greek name. Not sure of its origins at all beyond that is was used by my family for several generations in the early 1800s.

I've seen it before on some random website years ago, but I've never heard it on an actual person (or anywhere else besides that one website). I'm not a fan of the name. I mean, I don't hate it, but it's not something I'd ever consider using. To me, it sounds like someone is saying 'So free Ana.' I tend to not like names that sound like sentenses, and I just dont' like the sound of it.Ian Alexander • Cameron Blaise • Damien Cole • Axel Sean • Callum Bryce • Lennox Beau

I agree with the pp, it sounds more like a sentence than a name. Sophronia and Sophie-Anna are much more to my liking, and seem more legit. Since it's an 1800s name my best guess would be it's a misspelling of one of the two. If you look through the SSA charts there were lots of variant spellings back then on unusual names.http://www.onceuponatimebabynames.com/
