Whether it’s your first or fourth, expecting a baby is a busy and exciting time.

You have so many things to think about, like nursery themes and diaper brands. But, the biggest decision is undoubtedly what to name your baby.

People assume many things about a person based on name alone, believe it or not! Plus, your daughter’s name factors highly into what she’ll think about herself. 

So it’s a no-brainer that people spend hours and hours scouring Google for the perfect baby names.

But, if you spend all your time searching for an excellent first name, you might run out of steam before you find a great middle name. 

That’s why I’ve been putting together my How To Pick A Middle Name series. So with a quick glance, you can find the perfect middle name for your daughter!

Without any further ado, here are the best middle names for a girl named Lydia.

I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.
