26 Beautiful Christian Baby Girl Names With Their Meanings
A long time ago, Lydia was the name of an area in Asia Minor; consequently, the most common meaning ascribed to the name Lydia is â€œfrom Lydia,â€ which wouldnâ€™t make much sense on the surface. Lydia is also sometimes said to mean â€œbeautyâ€ or â€œa standing pool.â€ In the Bible, many might know the story of Lydia of Thyatira, who sold purple cloth and is believed by many to be the first European Christian convert. In pop culture, perhaps the most well-known Lydia is one of Lizzy Bennettâ€™s youngest sisters in Pride and Prejudice, but that characterâ€™s selfish nature is no reason to disregard an otherwise lovely name. Today, Lydia remains a relatively popular female name.
