I've loved Astrid for years, and I recently saw Astra! It's really understated and beautiful. It feels so celestial, not to mention that sweet spot of familiar while still being unique. I agree with Alatarí , let's keep this one to ourselves!!

With the popularity of Luna and Aria, I'm so surprised this doesn't even chart. I wouldn't be surprised if some celebrity gets their hand on this and it goes 📈📈📈 Let's hope it stays our little secret ;)

I named my baby girl Astra- it's beautifully feminine and I like the reference to the stars. It fits in nicely with my Scandi family too 🌟

Solely on sound, I like this a little more than Astrid or Aster.
