This is my name, a not uncommon Latvian girls' name. In Latvian it is pronounced Uh-Stra (Uh- as in 'putt', and with a rolled 'r'). In English my name is pronounce Au-stra (Au- as in Australia).

I once had a friend with this name. It's very unique.

There is a car called Astra here in Brazil. I like it better as name for people though.

The only problem with this name is that it's a make of car, so a girl named Astra might be teased.

I like this name a lot. I think that Adastra, from the Latin phrase Ad Astra meaning "to the stars" would be a good name too.

I love this name for the long 'ah' vowels in it - they give me an impression of regality and grandeur, or (if you *want* - but I disagree with what I'm about to type) glamour.

I think Astra is very feminine and I like the meaning. I once played with names and I came up with Azharastra. Azhar means "bright" and Astra means "star". I think this would be a good name for a female heroine in a story.

I think Astra is a very feminine name without being too cute. The meaning is quite beautiful and strong, and it can be used all around the world.

I don't like this name at all. It just reminds me of a tacky fortuneteller. Madame Astra or something like that.

Beautiful name.

First time coming across "Astra" - this is gorgeous!

I kind of like this. It seems like a sweeter form of Astrid.

This is my daughter's name. We wanted something feminine but strong- also well-matched to 'Freya' (her sister's name). We wanted to keep a Nordic theme as my family are Danish. Unfortunately we lost my best friend (my husband's sister) to cancer while I was pregnant. Freya believed she went to the stars, so having Astra come "from the stars" was significant to us.

My name is Astra and I honestly love my name and I love that I don't know one other person with it:) I always get mispronunciations but all of the compliments I get make up for all of them:)

I love this name so much, but naming a child after a car...

I love this name. My name is actually Tara which means star in hindi and Astra has the same meaning so I use this name as a username or a fake name :)
