One of those those name that just rolls right off the tongue. I haven't met any Estrellas yet, though.
I personally find the (Latin American) pronunciation a lot prettier, then again that's mostly because I can't imagine anyone else having this name other than a Spanish speaker.

My name is Estrella. I think people should try to say it right. Or say it in English "star" it's beautiful too in English, but it's much better in Spanish. I get mad whenever someone says it wrong. OOOOF. I love my name. It's a great name and it's unique in America. :) Beautiful name.

My name is Estrella, and I was born in Spain (where Estrella is pronounced "e-STRAY-a"). Two years ago, I moved to England, and my classmates, not knowing Spanish, pronounced my name as "e-STREL-ə". While I'm aware this pronunciation isn't correct, I think it sounds even lovelier than the original :-)
PS. Sorry for my English, I'm still learning!

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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