Definite baby name! If future husband agrees though. Cannot describe how lovely this is!

My fiancée's name is Estelle. Unfortunately she doesn't like her name, because she thinks it's too girly, and she herself is not amazingly girly. In my opinion the name isn't necessarily overly girly, rather it has a strong, authentic and vibrant air about it, an elegance that is independent of meekness.
Tlor555  7/29/2016
This has been interesting throughout my life, most people have never heard of it, Estelle. I love my middle name. The name Estelle is beautiful. Thanks Mom and Dad for the names. :-)
Lyzyrd222  5/14/2016
I think this name is absolutely beautiful and I really hope it doesn't become popular! I met a little girl named Estelle Jane yesterday and she was the cutest thing ever and the name fit her perfectly.

We named our daughter Estelle. We love a lot about the name - it's meaning, 'star', the balance of 'e's make the written name look pretty, the elegant sound on your tongue and the fact that it's not overused. It's more tailored than 'Estella' which to me sounds like the name stella just with an 'E' - In my opinion, not as much of a name in its own right when comparing to Estelle (2 syllables). We do shorten her name at times to just 'Elle' which is very feminine and sweet and she suits it well too. I had always loved the name Elle but couldn't use it as it seemed like it belonged to a longer name. I certainly love older names - I find they have more substance and class;) I see that the name is on the rise and I wouldn't mind if Estelle becomes more popular - but not too popular! Overall - I think Estelle is a classic, timeless beauty;)

Estelle is a beautiful, beautiful name. (: I love the meaning '★'. ^_^ It's so underused which is quite sad and surprising! :(

I want to name a girl twin set Estelle and Celeste. I have to admit, I think I like Celeste more, but it goes so fabulously with Estelle!

I'm surprised Estelle isn't more popular nowadays, since "Ella" and "Elle" names, as well as the super-similar Stella, have been very popular recently--not to mention that some old-fashioned names are coming back into vogue. I think Estelle is an old beauty that should be used more than it is. But not too much, of course! ;)
Bunko0  8/5/2011
I think this beauty is going to become more popular in the near future. With the trending favorability of names like Elle, Elle, and Stella, Estelle seems like the next logical favorite, and in my opinion, is the most elegant. I think it is gorgeous and could suit a wide range of personalities.
BBH  7/10/2011
I think it's a really cool name. The way my friend pronounces it Uh-STELL.
writer371  3/2/2011
It's pretty, but I do prefer Stella. Like slight_night_shiver said before me, it sounds better with the -ella ending.
Black_X  2/24/2011
A cool French version of Stella, and I do prefer Estelle over Stella, plus I like the singer ESTELLE!

I love this name! It's so pretty and elegant, and it's not as common as Stella.
bananarama  9/7/2009
I am shocked to learn that this name isn't on the Top 1000 [not that I'm complaining!]. I've always loved it because it's so girly; I didn't realize it was so under-used.

Estelle is a quite popular French name, mostly in the younger generation.
Marie-Amelie  5/24/2008
I much, much prefer Estella and Stella. This isn't a bad name either, but it sounds a bit snobby and pretentious because of the (pseudo?)-French ending. Nah, it needs the -ella ending.
slight night shiver  5/23/2008
Very lovely name in my opinion. It's cute, and I'm using it for a character in a story I'm making!
KamekoIida  3/16/2008
This is such a beautiful name. It's a shame it's so underused.

This name is so pretty, and I wish I could like it, but it just reminds me of Joey's agent on the TV show "Friends". I can only hear it in this cigarette- ruined voice.

My middle name, though spelled E-s-t-e-l-l. I love this name. Reminds me of an actress.

Estelle is such a beautiful, delicate name. I think it's just so lovely and feminine, it fits best an artistic and elegant person.
― Anonymous User  5/3/2006
This is a nice name and has a poetic meaning. My friend's aunt is named Estelle, but she spells it ESTELE and it is pronounced shorter than ESTELLE, kinda like Esther but instead of the 'r' and with the 'l.'
Milene  3/10/2006
In J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" books, Estel, spelled with only one "l" was an Elvish word meaning "hope". When Aragorn was young, dwelling in Rivendell, he was called Estel while his true lineage and name were kept hidden from him.
