    ERIN

    Usage: English, Irish

    Anglicized form of EIREANN. It has been used as a given name since the middle of the 20th century

    EIREANN

    Gender: Feminine

    From Éireann, the genitive case of Gaelic Eire, meaning "Ireland". It is commonly Anglicized as Erin

    SOPHIA

    Gender: Feminine

    Usage: English, Greek, German, Ancient Greek

    Other Scripts: Σοφια (Ancient Greek)

    Pronounced: so-FEE-ə (English), zo-FEE-ah (German) [key]

    Means "wisdom" in Greek. This was the name of an early, probably mythical, saint who died of grief after her three daughters were martyred. Legends about her probably arose as a result of a medieval misunderstanding of the phrase Hagia Sophia "Holy Wisdom", which was the name of a large basilica in Constantinople.

    Erin Sophia means Ireland and Wisdom
