Lydia- how many do you actually know?

Lydia is still in the running for DD #3, it is my favorite but I worry that it is popular or on its way to being really popular. I am from MI and only know 2- one is 20 something and the other is 3. So, my question is- how many Lydias do you know? (and your general region/location would be appreciated!) Thanks!

Re: Lydia- how many do you actually know?

  • The only one I know is in her 30s
  • I know 2 babies and two women in their 30s
  • I know of 1, about a year old in South Central PA
  • I know an "original" Lydia who is 90. I live in Colorado.
  • I only know 1 baby girl with that name 
    Me: 28  DH:30
    Together since: May 2005
    Married: June 2015

  • I don’t think I know any. I’ve heard it once or twice on the playground and know someone that would have used it but had a boy

    I don't personally know any Lydia's, baby, child or adult
    ETA: I currently live in MD but have also lived in Chicago and Philadelphia areas
  • I have known three in all my years, and I will estimate their current ages at... 33, 25, and 8. 
  • Only one, currently age 5, in Texas (but I’ve also lived in CA and CO and never met one).
  • West coast, and as far as I can recall I've only met one who must be 27/28. I don't know many little kids/babies, though.
