Lydia comes from an ancient kingdom that is located in modern Turkey. Lydia means "a woman from Lydia". Later, Lydia was the Roman province in which coins were invented. The name has a place in the Bible as well. In the Bible Lydia is described as “a seller of purple goods” and the “Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul.” Puritans loved to name their children after the lesser known characters of the Bible and this is probably why Lydia became popular in the 17th century. In terms of usage, Lydia is mostly used in England and the U.S.
