HOW TO CHOOSE A GOOD MIDDLE NAME FOR LYDIA

Lydia middle names

Choosing a middle name that both you and your partner love can be so hard!

There are so many things you’ll want to consider to make sure you give your daughter a name she will love and be proud of. Here are a few of them:

#1. The flow of names 

Some people find pairing a short first name like Lydia with a longer, more syllabic name like Sapphire gives a better flow.

But you know what? If you love a short middle name like Lydia Rose, that’s fine as well. There are no rules! 

#2. Say the names out loud

Do you like the sound of it, not just how good it looks on paper?

#3. Picking a meaningful name

You might also consider having a meaningful middle name rather than a filler name. 

So, say you struggled with infertility before finally getting blessed with your daughter. Isabella which means God’s Promise might be a suitable middle name for your Lydia. 

#4. The Initials

One HUGE factor you should consider is what the initials spell

You wouldn’t want any funny initials. On the other hand, an initial like L.I.T would be so clever!

Plus, this study shows that positive name initials lead to a longer life. So, you may consider giving your baby a positive acronym 

Remember, you might get monogrammed baby gifts.

#5. Have fun

Finally, don’t be in a rush. The perfect middle name for your baby will come to you. It might take a while but it will in the end.

Have fun and enjoy the process.

WHY HAVE A MIDDLE NAME FOR LYDIA?

I know, I know, you’ve searched far and wide, scoured blogs and books and still not found the PERFECT middle name. 

This has left you wondering if you must give your baby girl a middle name.

I’ve been there. I had a hard time picking a middle name for my son. So, I know and understand this struggle well.

Let me give you 3 major reasons why it’s a good idea to give Lydia a middle name.

#1. The Power of the FULL NAME

You will be familiar with the full name power play. You know, the one your parents undoubtedly used when you were being a naughty child.

When they called you by your full names including your middle name!

You remember, right?

It’s not just a parent hack, you know.

Recent research has proved that calling your child by their full names- First, middle and last names helps your child develop better behaviour. 

Amazing, right!

I should try it more often with my kids. Lol.

#2. A way to HONOUR FAMILY members

Giving your baby a middle name is a sweet way to honour family members, especially extended family that passed recently or ones you are/were particularly fond of.

#3. You’re giving your child OPTIONS

We all want our kids to love the names we give them.  Realistically, this won’t always be the case. 

And that’s okay.

By giving your child a middle name, you are giving them options for the future. In this case, your child has the option of using her middle name rather than her first name. 

Like Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. Her first name is Rachel but she goes by her middle name, Meghan.
