Good point... I know like three girls from my school with the name "Manila" - Fandom_Lover

10 Sofia

@Fandom_Lover - yes, this is an actual city, the capital of Bulgaria - a small country north of Greece.

Sofia became popular among the metal fans like me thanks to a great live show: "The Big 4 of Thrash: Live from Sofia, Bulgaria, 2010 (Metallica / Slayer / Megadeth / Anthrax)".

I think there's also a small city somewhere in the US, and a small town in West Virginia, US but the spelling is a bit different (Sophia).

And maybe everybody has heard of Sofia Vergara.

Sophia, or Sofia, is the Greek goddess of wisdom (the word means "wisdom"). - Metal_Treasure

Wait.. This is an actual name of a city? - Fandom_Lover
