These Are The Most Popular Baby Name for Girls in the World Is…

Nurseries and preschools around the world have been flooded with Sophias or  Sofias, Sofies and even the fancy version Zsófias. That’s because the name Sophia, plus all its different spellings, is the most popular girls’ baby name in the world, according to one expert.

Laura Wattenberg has collected baby name stats from 49 countries around the world for the site and found that some form of Sophia showed up in first place in nine countries, second or third in 20 others, and hit the top 25 in two-thirds of countries that report the popularity of baby names.

Sophia is a universal name too! It tops in both Christian and Muslim countries and in countries that speak 22 different languages. Big countries like China and India don’t report baby names, so while Sophia might be tops in the Western world, factoring in every country would definitely change the list.

Laura is not exactly sure why the world loves Sophia!  We have always loved Sophia Loren and  Sofia Vergara ~ and even Sofie the giraffe, but “It just blew me away that so many different languages and cultures would arrive at the same sound at the same time,” Wattenberg told Live Science. “I guess that really says something about the way culture is transmitted today.”
