Comments for the name Lydia

Comments for LYDIA:

Lydia probably dates from the Ancient Greek practice of renaming captive slaves with Greek nicknames after their physical attributes or where they came from. A Celtic slave might be called the equivalent of "Blondie". "Lydia" denotes a slave from Lydia in Asia Minor.

This is my name, and my mother always told me that it means "seller of purple," for the woman who took the disciples into her house in the New Testament. That was what she did for a living.
