Esther

myrtle leaf
ORIGIN: Persian
POPULARITY: 403
Esther has Persian roots and a strong religious backstory. In the Hebrew Bible, Esther—whose Hebrew name was Hadassah (“myrtle”)—was a young Jewish woman married to the Persian king, Ahasuerus. As queen, Esther risked her life to save her people from being exterminated throughout the Persian Empire. The Jewish holiday Purim is celebrated in her memory. This retro name that has been making a comeback. When Ewan McGregor of “Star Wars” became a dad to a baby girl in 2001, he named her Esther.
