Nel 1528 i Sofia furono ascritti alla nobiltà di Genova ed aggregati negli alberghi Grimaldi e Vivaldi. Fu costume delle più antiche famiglie, le quali dopo la caduta del Romano Imperio, in quella inondatione de’ Barbari, havendo i loro cognomi, sicome gli studi, e altre cose belle smarrito e restati solo con semplici nomi, trarre di nuovo i loro cognomi, e il loro casato da’ nomi proprii paterni, e de’ maggiori..

Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Last Name of SOFIA is the Italian form of the name SOPHIA, which was ultimately from a Greek word meaning ‘wisdom’. The name was used to denote the holy wisdom of God. St. SOPHIA built the six-century church in Constantinople. The name is also spelt SOPHIA, SOPHY, SONIA, SONYA and SONJA. Despite evidence that hereditary last names were in use in the Venetian Republic as early as the 10th Century, the origin of many Italian last names is unclear. There is still a great potential for research into medieval Italian records while documented evidence indicates the adoption of the father’s name as a Last Name is the most common form. The familiar endings of “i” and “o”, meaning to be a member of a certain family, bears this out. SOPHIA (1630-1714) was the Electress of Hanover, youngest daughter of Elizabeth, Queen of Bohemia.

In 1684 she married Prince Frederick, and greatly encourage his patronage of learning and the arts. The district of Charlottenburg in West Berlin was named after her. It was not until the 10th century that modern hereditary last names first developed, and the use of stable names spread, first to France, and then England, then to Germany and all of Europe. In these parts of Europe, the individual man was becoming more important, commerce was increasing and the exact identification of each man was becoming a necessity. Even today however, the Church does not recognise last names. Baptisms and marriages are performed through use of the Christian name alone. Thus hereditary names as we know them today developed little by little during the 11th to the 15th century in the various European states….
