Estrela is the Portuguese spelling and pronunciation. Es-STRELL-a is a valid pronunciation.

I know this is pronounced 'es-STRAY-a' in Spain, but could it be anglicised to 'es-STRELL-a'? 'es-STRAY-la', even? Or is that too much of a stretch?

I think Estrella is lovely and far prettier than Stella. I like Estrella as a middle name teamed with something short and sweet like Pearl.

AnonymousPerson Says:


Much nicer than Stella.

I've never seen this name before, but it seems like a good and quirky alternate to Stella. I sort of like it but I will have to think about this name for awhile to see how I really feel about it.
