Lydia is a place name for a region of Asia Minor where wealthy King Midas and King Croesus were believed to live. The name appears in the New Testament as a “seller of purple.” In fiction, Lydia appears in the works of DH Lawrence, George Eliot and Jane Austen—as the youngest Bennett daughter in "Pride and Prejudice." Lydia Rodarte-Quayle was the character name of the hyperneurotic mastermind in "Breaking Bad." "Lydia the Tattooed Lady,” a signature tune for Groucho Marx, has inspired the names of circus performers in pop culture.
