NN's for Esther?

My husband and I are expecting our first! We don’t know what the gender is yet, so we are still discussing boy and girl names. Boy names we are set on, girl names not so much. We want biblical names, and my husband keeps coming back to [name]Esther[/name]. [name]Esther[/name] is pretty, and I love the [name]Esther[/name] in the Bible. But, I’m just not in love with it. I’m trying to convince him of [name]Cassia[/name]. :slight_smile:

I’m thinking that maybe if I found a cool nickname for [name]Esther[/name], I’d like it more. The only nicknames I could think of were [name]Essie[/name] and [name]Tess[/name], but I’m not in love with either. What are your suggestions?
