Estera is a Romanian girl’s name of Old Persian and Babylonian origins, with links to Hebrew. Today, this dreamy appellation is favored in Polish, Slavic, and Croatian-speaking communities as a form of Esther and means “star.” Estera comes from the roots stara and Istar, like the name Ishtar—the Mesopotamian mother goddess of love and fertility. Its Hebrew form is ḥadaṣah, meaning “myrtle,” a plant sacred to the Greek goddess Aphrodite, as well as a symbol in Christianity honoring the purity of the Virgin Mary. Whether drawn to Estera’s ancient mythological roots or looking for a loving way to welcome baby to your faith, there’s no denying Estera comes steeped in divine feminine energy.
