Welcome to #Namemas, a collaborative name celebration and Christmas Countdown.

On the 5th day of Namemas TulipbyAnyName gave to me the baby name Esther.

Judy Garland played the role of Esther Smith in the musical film Meet Me in St. Louis. Garland later played a character named Esther again in the film A Star is Born.

Esther is a Persian name meaning star, currently ranked at Number 203.  Esther is also the name of a prominent Biblical figure.  Esther is a Jewish Queen in the Book of Esther that risks her life to save her people.  Esther’s original name in the Old Testament was Hadassah.  Her story, along with the meaning of the name Esther, has inspired many to bestow this name onto their daughters. Actor Ewan McGregor has a daughter named Esther Rose.
