You are right, the biblical Lydia was anything but a slave, she was an independant trader. But of course, her profession or status has nothing to do with the meaning of her name. Some scholars even suspect that Lydia was not her real name but that she was called Lydia just because she was from Lydia. But nobody seems to know the meaning.
