原My name is Lydia. I was named after my great grandmother and she didn't even use the name but used "Tina" instead - why would you name your kid the name someone else wouldn't even use? Honestly, I hate my name for the most part. About 6th grade was when I really started to despise it. Every day would be a new ordeal with kids saying I was "Chlamydia" or "labia" or something like that.
原Up until now I didn't like the name Lydia. It is my name and I was supposedly named after 2 of my Biological dad's sisters. Lydia and Maria, but the Maria got changed to Marie. He was never around so I didn't like being named for his family members, but with all this information on the name and its origins I'm starting to change my mind. My friends call me Lyds.
原There are no words I can use to describe how much I LOVE this name. Lydia would definitely be a potential name if I ever have a daugher. Lydia with the nickname of Lydie. And hey, I may very well name a daughter this (: Lydia: Nothing but the highest respect for it. Very beautiful!
原I've loved this name since I was a child because of Winona Ryder's character in Beetlejuice. When we were trying to figure out a name for our newest little girl, my husband had me read off the top 20 names from around 1880-1910. Lydia stuck out for him as well. So our little girl is Lydia Ruth! Everyone loves it.
原My name is Lydia, and I love my name! It is unique, and some of the meanings for it suit me! My family calls me Lid, and I get kinda annoyed by it, and my close friends also call me Liddie, but I make up nick-names for them too. I think it is a great name for a kind person, especially because it is so elegant.
原I love this name. It has a beautiful sound when you say it outloud--it is old-fashioned and beautiful at the same time. I knew a Lydia, and her family called her Lyddie for short. A perfect name for a smart, thoughtful, beautiful girl.
原My daughter's name is Lydia. It was one of the few names on our list that I felt would fit well for a variety of personalities, that it would fit whoever our daughter might grow up to be. I think it's both elegant and strong. Beautiful but not cutesy. I've heard the name a few other times and I know it's been slightly more popular than it had been in recent decades, but certainly not trendy or overused. My great aunt (who was born in the 1910s) told me it's a "good old name," which probably reflects on the fact that it was popular in the 1880s and before. Aside from my daughter, my strongest association with the name is Lydia Bennett from Pride & Prejudice, but even though she's not the best character I still have a positive association with it being in an Austen book.
原I've always loved the name Lydia. It is so feminine and reminds me of a delicate, fragile flower. I once met a girl named 'Lydia Lydiate' which was a bit ridiculous, but because it was so ridiculous it didn't put me off it. If your name is Lydia appreciate it because I am a huge fan of your name!
原Love this name! I've had similar experiences to those stated before, I've had people flat out tell me how much they hate this name. But I can't help but love it- it's so refined and beautiful, and it rolls of the tongue wonderfully.
原Lydia (portrayed by Sara Canning) appeared as a character in the Supernatural episode "The Slice Girls" in 2012. She is remarkable for having been an Amazon and mothering the child of Dean Winchester.
原I just noticed that the rating for this particular name has dropped from 74 % to 70 % overnight (I happened to look at the website yesterday) - how odd! Apparently dozens of people registered their negative opinion one after the other, in one go. I have noticed this phenomenon for other names too and it seems to me that the ratings on this board are being manipulated by certain users who are logging in and out, in order to be able to rate again. - this should not be allowed, as it gives wrong impressions of the popularity of names!
原Lydia was the eldest daughter of Robin Williams's character in Mrs. Doubtfire. She was often called "Lydie". I'm surprised that wasn't already on here! That's where I first fell in love with the name.
原Lydia Lopokova (1892-1981) was a Russian ballet dancer who married the Bloomsbury economist Maynard Keynes. She was friends with T.S. Eliot, H.G. Wells and Pablo Picasso, and helped to form a national ballet company in Britain.
原As feminine names go, Lydia to me is one of the nicest ones for a girl or woman of any age. It's delicate and refined. Lydia is also the name of a people who once lived in present day Turkey's Anatolian province all the way to the Aegean sea. They profoundly influenced the Greeks culturally before they were conquered by the Persians.
原This is my favourite girls' name. I like the sound, the spelling, and I've never actually met anyone with this name, which is all good. And I can't think of anything that would cause a kid to get picked on for having this name, either.
原I am very glad the name Lydia is so rare. It indicates that the few people who are blessed with the name are very special and noteworthy. For those people who have the privilege of knowing more than one Lydia, I don't know where you live, but here in the American Great Plains, it is not so prolific. I am heartened by all the lovely comments on this wonderful name and hope that they encourage some special parents to bestow upon their little girl this name of awe-inspiring beauty.
原As to the prior comments about people not liking the name "Lydia". I was named Lydia after my grandmother. I am Lydia Sue. I have always loved the name Lydia. I love the name and all my friends know that is my "real" name and they like it too. I too, have been called "Linda" in the past. If I would have been able to have another daughter, I would have named her "Lydia" something. I wished I had named my first daughter "Lydia".
原I adore this name. I named one of my first dolls Lydia. My husband says this name is too 1950s. I think it sounds historical and Biblical. And my name is Leah, so it would be a great mother-daughter combination.
原I happen to love this name. It's beautiful sounding, not trendy, and I love its eighteenth-century flavor. But every person to whom I have mentioned it says that they hate it, to the point that I would hesitate to use it for my daughter, because of the fact that she would have a name that was so universally disliked. But, considering that one of these commenters had named her daughter Hilary (hideous), perhaps I should just chalk it up to the fact that these people's taste is all in their mouth, and go for it anyway!
原Lydia's a name that's used a lot in my mom's family. My grandmother's name is Lydia (called Lily), my aunt's name is Lydia (called Lori), and her daughter's name is Lydia (called, well, Lydia). I don't usually like the whole family-name thing, but if I ever have a girl, I think I might name her Lydia, since it hasn't been used in that generation yet. Lily is a nice nickname for it.
原I love the name Lydia. It's pretty and it's a classic name but not nearly as overused as most others. The main literary associations are Lydia Bennet and Lydia Languish, not necessarily the most desirable, but I like it anyway.
原Groucho Marx sang about "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady" in the movie "Why a Duck" (1939). The song enjoyed some popularity. A sample of the lyrics: Lydia The Tattooed Lady/She has eyes that folks adore so/and a torso even more so.
译格鲁克·马克思在电影“为什么鸭子”（1939年）上关于“丽迪娅，纹身女士”。这首歌很受欢迎。歌词的例子：\u003cbr\u003e Lydia The Tattooed Lady /她有眼睛，人们喜欢这样，和一个躯干甚至更多。
原Instead of the name I was given (Audra--which I don't really like all that much), my mother was going to name me Lydia. Unfortunately, my sister picked my middle name (Lindsay) and they didn't think that the pairing sounded right. I think it sounds fine, and I almost regret them not naming me Lydia, since it sounds more pleasant on the tongue, but that's my opinion.
原Another Lydia to add to our growing list! I love my name! Except for all the people who can't say it. A lot of people call me Linda. Where the 'n' comes from I'm not sure. My grandmum calls me Lydie. To my friends I'm Lyd. And my mum calls me Lilly.
原Lydia probably dates from the Ancient Greek practice of renaming captive slaves with Greek nicknames after their physical attributes or where they came from. A Celtic slave might be called the equivalent of "Blondie". "Lydia" denotes a slave from Lydia in Asia Minor.
原My name's Lydia, too. My parents emigrated from Croatia, and my name is "Lidija" there (and that's how I was baptized). I haven't met many other Lydias. The two I have met were a Jamaican Brit and an Irish/Hawaiian girl, so I guess we're officially exotic (I'll take that!). The encyclopedia says that the Lydians were elegant and artistic, and devised the system of using coins. Lydia is also Beetlejuice's goth buddy. We're rare. Sweet!
原My own name is Lydia. I like being called Lydia ever since I was given this name. In my view, this is a pretty name as well as cute. I wish any girl who has this opinion of herself should be named Lydia and the like.
