Middle Name for Lydia

[name]Hi[/name] Everyone,

My husband and I have finally agreed on the first name [name]Lydia[/name] for our little girl on the way. My problem now is deciding on a middle name. I had originally planned on using [name]Marie[/name] as it is a family name but have decided against it because A. [name]Lydia[/name] is a family name and B. [name]Lydia[/name] is a place name and therefore doesn’t have a specific meaning and [name]Marie[/name] means bitter. I would rather give her a more bright and uplifting middle name. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

I [name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Lydia[/name]!

If you’d like a happy middle name, what about [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]? [name]Blythe[/name] means “happy and carefree.”

[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Mae[/name] (gives her [name]Marie[/name]'s M initial)
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]

I love [name]Mireille[/name], and think that [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] is beautiful! :slight_smile:

Good luck!

[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] is SO wonderful! It has such a great flow and they are such beautiful names (both personal favorites of mine!) Also, [name]Mireille[/name] is such a great substitute for [name]Marie[/name]–which is something of a filler name.
