Meaning:esteemed; beloved
A variation of Esmé, Esmae is a feminine name of French origin. Derived from past participle of the Old French verb esmer, meaning "esteemed," this much-admired name has come to mean "beloved." Pretty as the pronunciation may be, Esmae's roots are complex, though each is certainly lovelier than the last. Others are more transfixed by Esmae's more exotic flourishes, aligning it closer to the Spanish name Esmeralda, meaning "emerald." In any case, no matter which element you most admire, your little one will have no doubt how precious they are to you.
