I think Lydia is a beautiful name. Why exactly do you dislike it?

I actually like Lydia (considered naming my youngest that), but some of the others - like Beatrice??

Lydia is a very pretty name. I actually prefer "older" names rather than unpronouncable names of today.

I met a little boy named Gus and I think it's adorable! I'm glad older names are back in fashion.

Names are typically on a two generation cycle. No one want to use the names popular in the parent's generation, but go back one more to the grandparents and names start to sound fresh since they have not been in circulation.  No big surprise.

I love old classic names. It is a far better trend than Neveah or let’s make up a name or let’s spell a regular sounding name creatively so little Krystifer stands out.
