My name is Ana Sofia but I prefer to go by Sofia…although I am starting to want to change it back to Ana, tee hee! According to Urban Dictionary this is what my name means:
Ana: A nice looking girl who is very intelligent! She’s sweet, caring and a fun person. Everybody wants to be her friend.
Sofia: A Stunning Brunette Of Mixed Origins. Slender Figure. Breath Taking Beauty. Strong Personality. Amazing Will Power But Slightly Insecure. Loves Colour And Wears It Alot. Always Has The Must-Have Item But Never Shows It Off. A Beautiful Person.
Actually, my name means:
Ana: it is Hebrew and is pronounce either AN-ah or AHN-ah . It means grace, favour. And in Indian it means elephant!!
Sofia: it is Greek for wisdom. Pronounced: so FEE ah; zo FEE ah
So if you put the meaning of my name together I am: graceful/favoured wisdom…or wise elephant! I think I prefer to be a wise elephant, sounds waaaaay cooler!
How did my name come to be?
My dad always liked the name Tatiana and wanted to name me so so bad, but thankfully my mom said no way! I have nothing against the name, I do like it but my aunts and uncles started calling me Tatis before I was even born so it was soon scratched off the list.
After some thought my parents settled on Sofia. But it all changed after my first visit to the doctor who right away asked my parents: “Ana Sofia, right?”. My parents liked it and it stuck!
Funny Fact: The doctor that delivered both my parents delivered my older sister, my brother, and me! And we were all born in the same hospital! Woo hoo!!
So that’s me, the wise elephant who never forgets!
