I chose the name Sophia when I was reading about people taking “Muslim” names when they convert. There’s a lot of debate on whether such a thing is necessary, on whether it has to be an Arab name or not, etc. My opinion is that it’s not needed, but it might be beneficial. I also don’t think it has to be from any particular nationality. I decided that IF I converted and IF I wanted a name to reflect that, it would be Sophia – thus the name of the blog. I read the Bible a long time ago because I was curious, and Proverbs chapter 8 caught my eye. It refers to a personification of wisdom, but some translations simply use the Greek word for wisdom: Sophia. Thus the title of this blog, Theosophia, literally means “god-wisdom”.
