Personal Impression
I love the French sound of Estée.

I personally think that you should mention in the description that Estée is the French form of Estee, or add a separate entry for Estée. Estée Lauder (1908-2004) went by Estee from the beginning of her life up until she launched her perfume empire with her husband Joseph Lauder (whom she married in 1930), which is when she gallicized her given name. This is mentioned in the Wikipedia article about her: "Immediately though, the baby's nickname became "Estee", and which is what she grew up responding to. Eventually, Estee grew into an adult and when she launched her perfume empire with her husband, she added accent marks to make her name sound French and began pronouncing it the way her father pronounced it in his Hungarian accent."

Also, I see that you mentioned in the description that Lauder was born in 1906, while she was actually born in 1908. [noted -ed]

This name is so pretty! With Esme getting popular, I wonder if this will be able to make it into the top 1000.
