      Sophie
      Soph-a-loaf
      And some others that I have only been called like once.

  9. Great nicknames. How about S.E? It could work for both Sophias and Sophies. For Sophias it could be like S but make it sweet and add an ‘ee’ sound to the end. For Sophies it could be the first and last letters in their name.

  10. People call me Soph. I’m surprised you didn’t have Sonia on there, or Sonya. People also tease me and call me Soapie or Sofa. I hope no one I know ever finds out about Soph-a-loaf.
