Estelle is a sunny girl’s name of Latin origin, meaning “star.” This luminary hero originates from the term “Stella” and will have baby Estelle destined for fame. Although the name was thought outdated thanks to eponymous characters on Friends and Seinfeld, Estelle still remains in close quarters with ultra-feminine Belle, Isabelle, and Gabrielle. This beautiful name also derives from Occitan cultures, as references to a Saint Estelle existed in Aquitania in the third century. Saint Estelle was believed to be the patron saint of the Felibrige, which was a literary foundation set up to promote the regional language. With radiant and saintly-like depictions like these, Estelle is set to be a winning choice for parents.
