*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?

Everyone I know objects to this name. But I personally think it would be a nice middle or last name. And if you want to name your child Easter, consider if the child is born in Spring and giving her a common middle name. I still think it's a festive and interesting name than the common usual Esther. And good luck!

I still think it's tacky, but to each their own. Not validating your unwavering opinion. Looks more like a word than a name. Kids born in the springtime could use other more conventional names like the flower names or April/May.

Easter is my legal name, chosen by my catholic grandma. Yes, I was indeed born on Easter Sunday in April. I used to get teased a bit in elementary school so I didn't really like the name. Now that I became a born again Christian and my grandma has passed on, I treasure and appreciate this name very much. Most people who met me for the first time have said the name is very nice and I would have to tell the part when I was born. It is a great ice breaker ;)

This isn't a name, it's a holiday. It's just like naming a child Halloween or the Fourth of July, it's just plain weird and doesn't work.

My great-great grandmother was named Easter Lyon. I used to think it was a silly name, but it's grown on me over the years.

Easter is a good name and it reminds me of a friend.

I love Easter as a name for some reason, with the nickname Essie. I like it more than Esther, but the same as Ester.

Just go with Ester or a more normal sounding name.
