I think it's the same as Sonia. I agree that it may become more popular. The only thing holding me back from liking it too much is the Sonja Henie association.

Is this pronounced the same way as Sonia or Sonya? I do love Sonia. I think it will gain popularity in the coming years, as an alternative to Sophia and Sophie.
