It used to be one I couldn’t wrap my head around (pronunciation is a little hard in my accent.) Then I named a character [name_f]Esther[/name_f], and ever since I have adored it!! If I never end up going through with this book I might have to use it for a middle or something. I’m loving [name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f]

I know three girls named [name_f]Ester[/name_f] (this spelling is more popular where I’m from). I absolutely adore it and funnily enough I find [name_f]Esther[/name_f] slightly unappealing even if it’s almost the same name. Both are great solid names though.

All 3 I know are mid 20s though and they have no middle names, only one of them is [name_u]Maria[/name_u] [name_f]Ester[/name_f].

I hadn’t thought about [name_f]Esther[/name_f] as a name until one day shopping, when I heard a mom call her little girl [name_f]Esther[/name_f]. I immediately thought, How sweet!

Esther is such a BA in the Bible, I love her dearly!! The name itself is kinda serious, but not bad. It’s just not my favorite as I tend to prefer names with more of a flair.

I love [name_f]Esther[/name_f]. I know two people named [name_f]Esther[/name_f] in their 20s, and an [name_f]Esther[/name_f] who is a toddler. [name_f]My[/name_f] hesitation with using it is that it still has a pretty significant religious affiliation, and I am not religious. But I love the sound and the meaning.

I know a bunch of Esthers and it was my grandma’s name. Very common in Jewish communities for all ages although it’s definitely an “old lady name”. I love it anyway - even though I have [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] instead on my list.

Esther [name_f]Joy[/name_f], [name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], or [name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] are my favorites from your list. Maybe [name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] or [name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]?
