Estrella means "a star" in Spanish. I think it's very pretty.

The name of one of the maids on Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl is named Estrella. I quite like it, but it would probably get pronounced eh-STRE-lah.

Estrella Morente is a Spanish flamenco singer. She's the one who dubs Penelope Cruz in Volver.

Pronounced eh-Stray-ah.

Sorry, but Estrella is not pronounced Est-raya nor eh-Stray-ah. The CORRECT Spanish pronunciation of Estrella is Eh-streh-yah.

Sorry to tell you this Elianita, but silentjade was closer to the right idea. It's pronounced eh-STRAY-yah.

I think this name is gorgeous, by the way.

Estrella is a beautiful Spanish name meaning 'star'. I like because of a character in a book set in Spain in the 1500's.

The correct Spanish pronunciation is 'eh STRAY yuh' but I think people can pronounce it 'es STREL luh' if they want.

This name is said es-tray-a not es-trell-a and means star in Spanish.

This is quite a nice-sounding, refreshing name, but I wouldn't use it as it sounds a little bit too exotic. :)

A gorgeous name. I find it amazing how much better "Estella" can sound when you add an "r". I would use this name.

Personally, I think it sounds best when it's pronounced as it's said. Eh-STRELL-ah.

Estrela (with one L) is used in Portuguese and Galician as a girls' name. And of course, it also means "star".

My name is Estrella and hardly anyone ever pronounces it right.

It has a pearl-like lustre whether you pronounce it the correct, Spanish way or the English way (though I confess I like the English one slightly better). Reminds me of a short phrase from a book I read - "the host of stars swinging so low as almost to touch the palms" - palms being palm trees, of course. Good mental image.
