Nydia

Nydia was first used by British author Edward Bulwer-Lytton for a character in his novel The Last Days of Pompeii (1834). He may have based it on Latin nidus meaning “nest”, referring to a nest for small animals and insects.

Nydia could also be a contracted form of Nymphidia, an Ancient Greek name meaning “bride, bridal, young woman”.

Origin: Latin, Ancient Greek
