Baby Name of the Week: Esther

I think with a name like Esther, you either love it or hate it. I love it. My husband looked at me like I had five head and ten arms when I suggested it for our girl.

I even told a friend I liked the name and she looked at me the same way.

I just think it's the perfect mix of vintage and ethereal. Baby Name Finder says it means star in Hebrew and it's ranked at number 274 in popularity in the US.


I'm drawn to names that mean star. I love the names Stella, Nova, and the name Star itself.

If I was able to name my little girl Esther, I think I would call her Essie for short, which sounds really cute.

Have you really liked a name, but your partner didn't? What do you think of when you hear the name Esther?
