Matilda. Beautiful name smile

Lydia is a lovely name and quite unusual. I don't like Matilda.

Lydia is beautiful - really stunning, elegant name. I know one and she is lovely smile

Matilda is a little more quirky, currently quite popular but not sure how well it suits a grown lady? Cute for a kid though.

I like them both, but think Matilda goes better with your other DDs' names smile

Matilda is a bit bleh.

Lydia. I like Matilda but I think it's a bit overdone now.

Lydia. Think of the glorious book by H E Bates "Love for Lydia". Always my favourite heroine .

I like both, but I think Matilda goes better with your other names.

I think Lydia is gorgeous.

I absolutely love Lydia and wanted to call my dd it. My dp said it was too similar to chlamydia so we didn't use it but if I had my way we would have. And I completely disagree with the chalmydiya comments.

Lydia biased

I think Matilda goes better with Isabelle and Eliza.

My nan was called Lydia and I always wanted it for a girl. However, we had a Lydia start at work and her nickname soon became chlyamidia (excuse spelling).

I've always liked Lydia. Very elegant. Matilda is nice too but I don't like it as much
