"Lydia" English of Greek origin meaning woman from Lydia (an area of Asia Minor), also has enjoyed a steady rise in popualrity since the 17th cen proably from about the time "Les amours de Lydiam et Floriande" was published.
Cognates French: Lydie, Polish : Lidia, Czech: Lida.

The other possibility is it is from the place name LYDHAM in Shropshire,Possibly meaning "at the Gates or the slopes"
