Hester Meaning
Latin form of Esther. Like Esther, it has been used in England since the Protestant Reformation. Nathaniel Hawthorne used it for the heroine of his novel 'The Scarlet Letter' (1850), Hester Prynne. Hester is a Latin variant of Esther. Esther most likely originates in Old Persian language and means "star-like". Some sources also suggest its derivation from Ishtar, the Babylonian goddess of love. Esther has been one of the most popular feminine given names in the United States for a long time, especially in Jewish families. In the Bible, Esther was a Jewish queen and heroine of the Book of Esther.
