    Livia, Lydia or Lilia?

    Think that if our baby is a girl, she would have one of the three names above...there are elements of all of them I love and there are also some reservations about each.
    Would love to hear your opinions on them and also suggestions for potential middle names. Thanks in advance

    I think Livia is pretty but looks incomplete because of the popularity of Olivia. Lydia is nice but it has a more firm sound than your other names. Lilia is lovely and delicate. A perfect name for a little girl.

    I quite like Lydia, but it still makes me think of Lydia Bennet (from Pride and Prejudice), who I really didn't like. I suppose Lilia, would be my pick; it's very pretty.

    Definitely Lydia! So feminine and classic.

    I love Livia, it's a truly ancient name going back to patrician families in Rome. Lydia is a solid name, not one of my favorites, but that's just personal, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. You're right Lilia is fresher than Lily, and is nowhere near as overused. You can't really go wrong with any of them.
