A famous bearer of the name Estelle is from Great Expectations, the book by Charles Dickens. She is the beautiful woman/girl that Pip falls in love with and the adopted daughter of a mysterious old woman who lives in her past.

The name of the girl in "Great Expectations" is Estella, not Estelle.

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.

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.'

Estelle is such a beautiful, delicate name. I think it's just so lovely and feminine, it fits best an artistic and elegant person.

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

My middle name is Estelle and I was always told that it is a French name, not an English one.

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.

This is such a beautiful name. It's a shame it's so underused.
-- arrowhead909  8/24/2007
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
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.

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.

I love this name! It's so pretty and elegant, and it's not as common as Stella.
-- bananarama  9/7/2009
I really hope this name doesn't become popular, it would kill me! I'm gonna name my daughter this maybe! I love it. Its most popular year 1908 where it ranked #107.

A cool French version of Stella, and I do prefer Estelle over Stella, plus I like the singer ESTELLE!
-- Anonymous User  6/28/2010
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
I think it's a really cool name. The way my friend pronounces it Uh-STELL.
-- writer371  3/2/2011
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.

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! ;)
