Esmee could be a nickname for Esmonda or Esmeralda.

I like this name a lot more than Esme because it looks a lot more feminine, like Renee and Rene and such. I think it sounds like the name of a very beautiful person with blue eyes and brown hair.

I love this name when pronounced EHZ-MAY. I hate that parents are starting to name they're daughters Esme pronounced EZ-MEE. Whenever I hear the name EZ-ME, I think the parents didn't know how to pronounce EZ-MAY correctly.

A angelic and beautiful name. I'm so glad this name is uncommon, it is beautiful and very sweet on any woman.

It's quite pretty, and I came across a baby Esmae.

To the above comments, yes Lemony Snicket called her Esme Squalor for that book, and it was just spelled with one E at the end.

There's little-used variant, Esma. It was borne by Aussie actress Esma Cannon (1905-72) who acted mainly in Britain.
Her full name was Esma Ellen Charlotte Cannon.

I adored this name until the Twilight series became a fanatical circus. Now I'd be terrified to use it. People would assume I'm an avid fan of the series.

Yawn. This name is overrated, even though this is the proper feminine form. I don't like it because it reminds me of the similar-sounding "name" Renesmee (which I strongly dislike).

I think Esmee is a beautfiul name. I would name my daughter this. I'm into E names now.

This names is also used in the Netherlands where it´s pronounced ehs-MAY and also spelled without the accent sometimes. I think it´s a beautiful name with a great meaning.

This name is certainly a breath of fresh air. In Scotland the male version was used sometimes, dating from the 16th century and the "Auld Alliance" between Scotland and France - and as a result it was occasionally (in the male version, with only one e) given to girls. I hate it with only one e, as it's grammatically masculine, but it's quite pretty with two ees, the correct feminine way.
If using this name for a daughter, I think it's important to make sure that the registrar registers the name with the double e and the correct accent.

Esmee Denters is on tour with Justin Timberlake. I first saw her on YouTube. She is an excellent singer. She even has a record deal.

In Lemony Snicket's A series of Unfortunate Events, there was a character called Esmee Squaller.

There is probably a character named Esmee Squalor in Lemony Snicket (as noted by someone before me) because of JD Salinger's wonderful short story "To Esmee with love and squalor".

Is very posh in England right now. Cute name.
