*Easter* is a lovely name with an obvious religious association.

Eostre, from which this name is derived, is believed to be the Old English goddess of spring, cognate to the German Ostara.

It's better than Christmas, but that's not saying much, ha ha. Holiday names sound weird, whether the particular holiday is going on or far away.

If you name your kid this, they will punch you in the face as soon as they are old enough to comprehend the fact that their parents named them Easter.

Mentioned as a girl's name in Sheryl Crow's "Everyday is a Winding Road". (/He's got a daughter he calls Easter/)

This has been one of my favorite feminine names the longest (along with Echo), but I could never use it now, since the religion I chose was not Christianity. I don't even remember why I fell in love with this name, but it has a nice sound.

I like this name. Even though I am not Christian, it reminds me of Easter Island, which is a BEAUTIFUL place! I would use it, but as a middle name.

This was sometimes a misspelling of the biblical name Esther.

Wow, I didn't know this was a name. It's not really my style. :P

Beautiful! I don't like Christmas (the name) as much as Easter.

Like the anon user said, I had a lot of people call me this in my elementary school years as a mispronunciation of my name Esther. I heard of the name long ago on another site. However, I like my name better. I think a girl with this name would definitely get teased a lot because of the holiday. I already was and it isn't even my name! My parents were influenced to name me after Easter since I was born in April!

This "name" is actually kind of pretty - it sounds nice. But in the end, it's not really a name. It's a holiday. Would you name your kid Halloween?
