Just what the title says! I met a Zydia today (in her 20s) and wondered what people thought? I think I really like it!

Sounds like somebody replaced a random letter with Z. Like calling a child Zophie, Zolivia, or Zessica.

I much prefer Lydia tbh,it sounds like a made up name to get a Z initial.

Saucery Sat 08-Apr-17 15:14:53

I like it, mix of Lydia and Zilphah

Made up name?

NisekoWhistler Sat 08-Apr-17 15:15:51

Sounds like a disease like Zika mixed with chlamydia

Its like Lydia gone wrong. Sounds like being different crossed way over into daft

I think it sounds ridiculous.

No, really not keen. There are much nicer 'Z' names about! Zara...Zoe...Zola even.

I've seen Sydia before but not Zydia - how was it pronounced? That'll make the difference to whether I like it or not!

Sounds made up and silly.

IHeartKingThistle Sat 08-Apr-17 17:16:27

I know a Zethan and a Zuban- no idea if they are 'real' names or not!

Lydia is much nicer

I know a Zayda. Love that. She's 83 so not a trendy name!

Queensparkles Sun 09-Apr-17 01:23:52

Not keen on Zydia, Zayda sounds nicer though! & growing up I knew a Zailey

easy to remember

I quite like it and the other unusual Z names. I went to school with a Zannah.

BeanSprout79 Sun 09-Apr-17 09:19:55

My DH said it sounds like a name for a pill!

Gardencentregroupie Sun 09-Apr-17 09:21:52

"Hi what's your name?"
"What, Lydia?"
"No, Zydia, with a Z."

Repeat forever for her whole life.
