The name Estelle is a girl's name of French origin meaning "star". Estelle is ranked #791 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Badass Princess Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Heaven Hell Purgatory -- GIRLS".
From the experts:
Maybe it's because she shares that winning -elle sound with Isabel and Bella, but Estelle is no longer seen as a muumuu-wearing canasta player of a certain age (think George Costanza's mother on Seinfeld or Joey Tribbiani's talent agent in Friends), but has become one of the fastest-rising names on Nameberry. This could be in part thanks to the young Royal Couple of Sweden, who chose it for their firstborn daughter, or the single-named British R&B singer. It reentered the US Top 1000 in 2012 after a nearly fifty-year absence, and it has now risen to a modest Number 838.
Latin version Estella, introduced in Great Expectations, also has energy and charm, while Estrella is another stylish member of this star-related club. Ali Landry has a daughter named Estela. Este and Estee are also in the wind.
