I know someone with this name and she pronounces it “ZO-sha”. Such a beautiful name especially when pronounced that way.

I am absolutely in love with this name! With my strong Polish heritage I always thought of it as a possibility. However, I feel it falls under my whimsical names list instead of actual possibilities for a baby girl.

To confirm, it's pronounced Zo-sha. This name is spunky and sassy and all around cute. At least I think so, I know a girl named this and she is one of the sassiest (in a funny/good way) little girls I have met. She's also very honest. This name is adorable.

DearestJules Says:


My mom is Polish and when I ask her about baby names she always mentions Zosia as a longtime favorite of hers. She says the Polish way to say it is like "ZO-sha," not "Za-sha". But maybe za-sha is another way to say it as well?

Vicki Says:


In Poland, Zosia is a nickname for Zofia

Guest Says:


I thought this was zo-SY-a when I first saw it because I had never watched Girls. Definitely the best Sophia alternative (I hope that name is off the top next year)

I like both pronunciations! What a fun name!

jmoldt2 Says:


This was my great-grandmother's name and it was pronounced Zo-Sya, two syllables. The other way to pronounce it is the Polish diminutive of Zofia - Za-Sha, like Sasha with a Z. The latter is more common.

This is a very pretty, intriguing name. Is it pronounced ZO-sia or more like Sophia (zo-SEE-ah)?
