Hell, I know exactly 26 Sophia’s! 2 in my family. I’ve been to 3 states in the U.S.

Oh my gosh yes! I can name 5 Sophias/Sophies Off the top or my tongue. And trust me, if I took the time to rly think about it I could probably come up with at least 12.
But I get why it’s overused. I love the name Sophia. If it wasn't so overused I’d probably decide right now to name my future daughter Sophia

23 Ava

People like to name their children after celebrities (Taylor, Jackson, etc) or really quick, simple things. A character in my stories is called Ada and she's not at all simple. 🙃
