I just had to post. [name_f]Chrissy[/name_f] [name_f]Teigen[/name_f] and [name_u]John[/name_u] [name_u]Legend[/name_u] have announced the name of their newborn; a daughter named [name_f]Esti[/name_f] [name_f]Maxine[/name_f]. I was so excited to hear their choice, as I love their other children’s names, and they did not disappoint.
[name_f]Beautiful[/name_f] sibset! Congratulations to the couple. What’s your opinion?
I love it! It feels very in-tune with Luna’s name (celestial first + retro chic middle) but still quite a surprise, in a good way. [name_f]Esti[/name_f] is sweet and sparky
It’s not something I’d personally choose, but I’m glad they found something they love! All of their children have very grounded names (nothing that sticks out as a celebrity baby name) so, I think this makes sense for them! [name_f]Esti[/name_f] matches well with the celestial vibe of [name_f]Luna[/name_f], though it’s a bit stylistically different from [name_u]Miles[/name_u] and [name_u]Jack[/name_u]! I enjoy the meaning of “greatest star” as well
Ooh this is my favorite of their names and I think it clicks well with [name_f]Luna[/name_f], [name_u]Miles[/name_u], and [name_u]Jack[/name_u] while still being different and going in a different direction
not a chrissy teigen fan, but esti is just darling a surprise with the much more popular names that her siblings have, but a very great surprise! i’m hoping esti will rise in use now
It feels very different than their other kids’ names imo. I guess the middle name fits with the others but the first name feels very, very different.
Then again, the idea of a “sibset” is something that doesn’t tend to mean much in real life. So take my comments with a grain of salt.
I’m not personally a fan of the couple (don’t fully know who they are or follow them) but I’m happy their baby arrived safely
I don’t know if I’m just tired but I can’t for the life of me figure out what the problem is with either of those.
Update: Okay, I just got it. For some reason I thought that the “d” and the “I” were supposed to be added on to the end of Esti, so it would be like “esteed” or “esteye.” facepalm Oh my gosh, I need to go back to sleep. My initial thinking makes absolutely zero sense.
To my knowledge, [name_f]Esti[/name_f] [name_f]Maxine[/name_f] doesn’t have the musician nods her siblings do (Nina [name_u]Simone[/name_u] & [name_u]Miles[/name_u] Davis) and that’s a tiny bit disappointing.
On one of the social media sites for Nameberry someone pointed out that it apparently is a swear word, or reminiscent of one……
Before reading that, though nms, I didn’t think it was a bad/ outrageous kind of name.
it’s a swear word in quebec, so unless you’re from mainland [name_f]Canada[/name_f] it probably doesn’t matter too much
It’s certainly a refreshing name for the “star” meaning.
[name_f]My[/name_f] first thought when seeing this name was actually testis But that’s silly, I still think it’s a great name.
I don’t particularly care for the flow of the sibset with the girls having cosmic names while the boys have really basic names. But it’s not really important in the grand scheme of things.
[name_f]My[/name_f] sister was going to use [name_f]Esti[/name_f] for her little girl, until she remembered her last name starts with a D
[name_f]Edit[/name_f]: [name_m]Ah[/name_m], I see some others have made the same connection
I think it’s nice.
The model [name_f]Esti[/name_f] Ginzburg is fairly well-known, so it’s not an unfamiliar name to me.
The Quebecois meaning though…
