    a problem with the name Stella (Estelle).

    I think of the name Stella or Estelle. but the meaning of the word Stela (or Stele in French) upset me. very similar sound. What do you think about that?
    Stela, also spelled stele (Greek: “shaft” or “pillar”), plural stelae, standing stone slab used in the ancient world primarily as a grave marker but also for dedication, commemoration, and demarcation.

    The meaning of the name Stella is "star", and Nameberry says Stela is a variant of Stella that has the same meaning. It's a completely different name than Stele, so I don't think you'd have to worry about the similar sounds. There are plenty of names that sound similar to each other with very different meanings.

    I'd always associate Stella/Estelle with stars and i wouldnt have been familiar with the meaning of stele or stela. Are you living somewhere or around people who would immediately make that association?

    I also only think of stars. I doubt many people, if anyone at all, would connect it with stele.
