The town's name is a corruption of "Lockchoppe." Derived from the Muskogean languages 'lokchapi' ('lokcha' (acorn) / 'api' (stem)), this was the old name of the nearby river. Sopchoppy came into existence in 1894. After the Carrabelle, Tallahassee and Georgia Railroad Railroad Company had built a railway through the area, they platted the town on property they already owned in the area, across the river from Greenough, Florida To encourage people to settle there, the railroad engaged in a significant advertising campaign, exaggerating the quality of the soil and climate. The population was 426 at the 2000 census. .
