User comments for Esperanta (Meaning / History Only)

In Esperanto, this is the participial form of the verb "esperi," to hope. Dr. Zamenhof, who designed the language, used the pen name "Esperanto" when he first published his international language. To European ears, ending the word in -A lends the word a feminine sound, perfect for a girl's name.
