Lydia: baby girl name meaning and popularity

Lydia

With ancient Greek origins meaning “noble” and “beautiful,” this name references a region on the west coast of Asia Minor named for the legendary King Lydos. History tells us that the Lydians were the first people to use a coin system for currency, and Lydia is the name of a shopaholic in Pride and Prejudice. I guess what we are saying is: Lydia may be cute, but she might also drain your bank account.
