As much as I like this name, I would never use it on a daughter. I prefer the name Esther which means "star"

This is a pretty nature themed name.

But Stella seems so metallic to me, somehow, whereas Star doesn't. But I don't think Star quite does for an official name.... It would make a sweet, sparkling nickname for Ostara.

Star is sweet and shining.
