'Sophia' has been declared as the most popular baby name in the world. Experts suggested that Sofia has become the favorite girl's name of nine countries, including Mexico, Italy and Russia, but comes in third among parents-to-be in the US and second or third in at least 20 other countries.

Laura Wattenberg, the naming expert who undertook the analysis, said, "Sofia appeared to transcend culture and borders. It just blew me away that so many different languages and cultures would arrive at the same sound at the same time. Yet while Sofia is now in the top 25 names for two-thirds of countries that keep statistics - mostly Europe and America - the name was not popular a generation ago. As religiously inspired names such as Mary and John have dropped off the radar, it seems parents want more unique names which they think sound stylish."

This might also mean that as Sofia trends around the world parents might soon see it as too boring for their offspring.
