Thoughts on Lydia?

I love [name]Lydia[/name], but I wanted to know if there were other names that you all thought were better (I should take that with a grain of salt, I imagine…)? So, what are your thoughts on this name? What sort of person do you imagine, in terms of anything (looks, personality, occupation, etc.)? What sort of sibling names do you like?

Thanks. I’m just curious… :slight_smile:

I love [name]Lydia[/name]! It’s so under-used.

I imagine her as being strong and bold, but also sweet and a little meek at times. She’s a leader in the workforce. Sometimes I imagine her as a blonde, but I think it would be adorable on a girl with chocolate brown hair.

[name]Natalie[/name], [name]Kara[/name], and [name]Molly[/name] would be cute for her sisters. For brothers - [name]Nathan[/name], [name]Daniel[/name], or [name]Owen[/name].

I love [name]Lydia[/name].

I absolutely love [name]Lydia[/name]! It’s familiar, but not common or boring, and just overall has a nice feel. I would imagine a [name]Lydia[/name] to be blonde, slightly shy, with a good sense of humor. Siblings could be [name]Serena[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Isabelle[/name], [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name]…

Thanks, girls! That is my vision of [name]Lydia[/name], too - not popular, but not unfamiliar. I actually only know one [name]Lydia[/name].

I love [name]Charlotte[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name], too.

I SO love the name [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Lemon[/name]! :slight_smile:

Good luck!

Okay, I’m glad that you all love the name [name]Lydia[/name] as much as I do! What names do you think are nice to go with it, boy and girl? As I said before, I do like [name]Charlotte[/name] and [name]Caroline[/name] - can’t use them both, though, as they are both variants of [name]Charles[/name]! I am talking both sibling and middle names…

Again, just thinking - not having a baby yet.
