Ester is a feminine name of Persian and Hebrew origins. A variant of Esther, which in turn is connected to the Hebrew Hadassah, this vintage-sounding name translates to “myrtle leaf,” a plant that’s been used for a variety of medicines. With its delicate, star-shaped flowers, it's no wonder that the name Ester also translates to “star.” If you want to help baby connect with the beauty and vitality of Mother Nature—and celebrate them as a shining star—they’ll easily grow into the name Ester.
