I think the correct pronunciation of the name would be: es-pe-RAN-tha, not es-pe-RAHN-sah. [noted -ed]

I really love this name. Not to brag, but my name is Esperanza, and I am glad to bear this name.

This name was used by Sandra Cisneros for the main character of her autobiographical novel 'The House on Mango Street', and is also the name of the title character in the children's novel 'Esperanza Rising'.

I think this is a beautiful name and the meaning makes me love it even more. I've liked it ever since I heard it in "The Mask of Zorro."

I heard this name from "The Mask of Zorro" and have liked it ever since. Feminine, but with a strong and deeply lyrical quality to it.

I love it. If I was to choose a Spanish name, Esperanza would be it. It would be great as a last name. Like, "Carmen Esperanza". I know, I know, pick the most stereotypical Spanish first name ever, right? :P I like it though. Is Esperanza used as a last name?

Yes, Esperanza can be a last name.

There's a book called Esperanza Rising. It is the story of a Spanish girl of 14/15 years whose land, life, and family is broken by the white men. She is forced to work in a low position in the fields and live in squalor.

Latin for "hope" is "spes", not "sperans" (which is a participle, meaning "hoping"). I have met a French girl named "Espérance" (French form of Esperanza) but it's very uncommon.

If you aren't Spanish-speaking and are reluctant to give your daughter a Spanish name, consider Esperance, a now-obsolete word meaning "hope" derived from Middle English "esperaunce". (Merriam-Webster)

It's also very similar to the French form from the comment above.

Esperanza is the Spanish vocabulary word for "hope".

I love this name. It sounds so dramatic and seductive. Like strong feminine perfume. Though they both have the same meaning, Esperanza is so different from Hope. In my opinion, Hope sounds pathetic, but Esperanza? It's a whole different story. It sounds strong, powerful and beautiful.

I think Esperanza is the most beautiful name on Earth. It is not simple or popular. It is strong and delicate at the same time. I can't describe it but the name is "fiery, spirited, and seductive."

The mother of the main character Spirit in the 2002 animated film 'Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron' is named Esperanza.

This is one heck of a name- in an amazing way. It's gorgeous, sexy, yet classy all at one. It's not tacky or gaudy sounding just because it's from another language, either, and in English it still sounds great and looks good. I love this! :]

It's ridiculous! She will be teased for life!
Poor child.

This makes me love my name even more.

At first, I hated my name since all the kids had jokes about it! Then my Spanish teacher said my name in Spanish and I fell in love with it. I never got a nameplate, now it makes a conversation! They ask me how to pronunce it, and what does it mean! Now that I'm grown, I love my name.
