For those of you wondering why the name Sofia (and, introduced in the next lesson, Adamo) has been chosen: (from Wikipedia's page on Ludwik Lejzer Zamenhof, the creator of Esperanto)
Zamenhof and his wife Klara raised three children, a son, Adam, and two daughters, Sofia and Lidia. All three died in the Holocaust.
(Also: Sofia (with
f) is a rather common spelling of the name here in Europe, while Sophia (with
ph) probably is more common where English is the native language.)
I think you can say it the same way, since there aren't any sounds in the name Emily that don't exist in the language (like w for instance)
If you wanted to spell it like it would be in Esperanto, I'm just guessing since I'm more of a beginner but I'd say Emeli. At the screen where you select which part of this lesson to do, there's notes at the bottom about Esperanto names! :D
