Quite right. Safiya is an Arabic name meaning 'in good health'.

Lola Says:


I have a dear friend named Safia (spelled w/o the y) and she has never had a problem with her name sounding racist. I think it is a lovely name and a creative alternative to the popular Sofia.

amberdaydream Says:


Safiya is Arabic. Saying Safiya is Egyptian is like saying Chloe is Australian.

KJGlitter Says:


Not racist :) Safiya may sound a bit like Sophia with an accent to some people, but it has nothing to do with race. Pretty name, though.

alexandramae Says:


It's Egyptian. So... not saying your comment is a little racist but.

This sounds like Sofia with some sort of accent. Not a fan.
