My mother is Filipina and my father is of Norwegian descent so it does give me an ambiguous look, which I thought would be beneficial.

It was an immediate awareness.

Sophia Rose Stallone

by ethnic on October 3, 2018

LOS ANGELES – MAY 12: Sophia Rose Stallone at the NYLON Young Hollywood May Issue Event at HYDE Sunset on May 12, 2016 in Los Angeles, CA Photo by kathclick/Bigstock.com

Place of Birth: Miami, Florida, U.S.

Date of Birth: August 27, 1996

Ethnicity: Italian (paternal grandfather), French Breton, Irish, Polish, German, Danish or Norwegian, distant French-Canadian, possibly Ashkenazi Jewish, possibly other

Sophia Rose Stallone is an American actress. She is the daughter of actor and filmmaker Sylvester Stallone and model, entrepreneur, and business owner Jennifer Flavin. Among her siblings is actor Sage Stallone and model Sistine Stallone. Her uncle is actor Frank Stallone.

Sophia’s paternal grandfather was Frank Stallone, Sr., who owned beauty salons and played polo (the son of Silvestro Stallone and Pulcheria Nicastri). Frank was born in Gioia del Colle, Provincia di Bari Puglia, Italy. Silvestro was the son of Domenico Stallone and Maria Giuditta Patarino. Pictures of Sophia’s grandfather and great-grandfather can be seen here. Sophia’s great-grandmother Pulcheria was the daughter of Francesco Nicastri and Nunziata Speranza.

Sophia’s paternal grandmother is Jackie Stallone, an astrologer, dancer, and women’s wrestling promoter (born Jacqueline Frances Labofish, the daughter of John Paul Labofish and Jeanne Victoria Adrienne Anne Clérec). Jackie was born in Washington, D.C. Sophia’s great-grandfather John was born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, the son of Charles Schachan/Shashan Labofish/Labofisz and Rose Ethel Lemlich/Lamlec/Lamletz/Lemletz. On census records and in other documents, Charles and Rose were listed as born in Germany most of the time, or in Russia, some of the time. Their language was usually listed as “German.” Sophia’s great-grandmother Jeanne was born in Brittany, France, to French (Catholic) parents, Louis Victor Clérec and Marie Pauline Rodrigue, and had Breton ancestry.

Sophia’s maternal grandfather was Donald Hugh Flavin (the son of Hugh Edward Flavin and Theresa Wyrzykowski/Wyrsykowski). Donald was born in Minnesota. Sophia’s great-grandfather Hugh was the son of John Bernard Flavin, whose parents were Irish, and of Julia A. McGuire, who had Irish and French-Canadian ancestry. Julia’s maternal great-grandmother has been described as Ojibwe. Her surname is said to be Sauteuse, like the Saulteaux tribe. It is not clear if this is accurate. Sophia’s great-grandmother Theresa was born in Minnesota, to a Polish father, John Wyrzykowski, and of a German mother, Theresa A. Graf.

Sophia’s maternal grandmother is named Shirley Mae Knudsen. The surname Knudsen is of Danish or Norwegian origin.

It is not completely clear what Sophia’s paternal great-grandfather John Paul Labofish’s ethnic background was. There are some indications that the family was German, and lived in the Russian Empire. An article in The Daily Mail, a British middle-market tabloid, stated that Sophia’s paternal great-grandfather was of Jewish heritage, but it is not clear if this is accurate. There are many indications that he was not Jewish, and, it appears that, at least after they moved to the United States, Sophia’s paternal great-grandfather’s family were Christian by religion (although it is possible that they were born Jewish).
