Lydia has been floating around our list for a while, I’d like to pair it up with something old fashioned and whimsical for a middle name. What would you put with Lydia as a middle name?

Short or long surname ?

Mae? Faith? Grace?

Even something like Daisy might work, though I think a single syllable works best.

If we go with Lydia, I think Jane would be my husband’s choice and I do like it too but dreaming of longer names at the moment.

My sis is Lydia.
My other sisters x 2 are also named here, as potential middle names. My middle name is also mentioned. And a version of my name is also mentioned as a potential middle name.
My sisters middle name is Maree, which does sound lovely together.
I LOVE the name Lydia and would definitely have considered for my daughter if I didn't have a sister with that name.
I hope you choose it.
