I want to name my second daughter Esther and call her Essie, I think it's cute.

I don't like this nickname much, it sounds so child-like and old-fashioned.

I once knew a girl called Essie and her full name was Alessandra. I love the name Essie. I think it's very soft and feminine.

This name is ok. It doesn't sound like a name by itself though but it could be short for something. I wouldn't name my kid this though because personally it reminds me of "easy" and I don't want the first impression of her name to be that she's easy.

Australian actor Essie Davis bears this name. Essie comes from Tasmania. She's been in many TV shows and movies, such as The Slap, Baz Luhrmann's Australia and Cloudstreet. She plays the title role in Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries which is a fantastic show. The first episode was last night.

My name is Esther and my brother-in-law has been calling me Essie for years. It has become my nickname in the family and even my nieces and nephews call me by it. I think it is a very sweet name.

Cute nickname for Esther.

My name is Essie. I was named after my grandmother. Her name was Essie Mae and mine is Essie Lynn. She was of French origin and always told me that my name meant "star". I was embarrassed of my name as a young girl because other kids would tease me and call me Elsie, which I didn't like at all.
As an adult I have come to be very proud to be called Essie because it reminds me of my grandmother and how everyone used to call her Miss Essie. Now knowing it is derived from Ester, and knowing the biblical story of Ester makes me smile just thinking of it.
