"This name is uncommon but not strange. It has a beautiful soft, feminine sound. There are some good nicknames including Stella or Elle." Dec. 13, 2009:
"My 3 year old daughter is named Estelle. We sometimes call her Stellie or Stella. It is perfect for her and we get compliments on the name all the time. Such a unique, beautiful name and it means "star of the east" (we are from the New England area)." Nov. 15, 2009:
"I love this name and it's top of our list for our first child. Is it ever shortened to Stelle or Stella?" Jun. 7, 2009:

"My name is Estelle.
People either mispronounce it as Estella or Esther, which gets frustrating. I infrequently have to vocally spell my name for people, only the ones that did not pronounce it correctly.
One thing you will notice when you have the name Estelle is how dedicated people are to really, REALLY assuring that you know just how much they think the name Estelle is old-fashioned and "a grandmother's name."
I have never disliked my name, but I dislike the popularity it is receiving. Maybe it's because I've never met anyone else called Estelle, but I am not fond of the idea that I could meet another Estelle already, let alone potentially thousands of the little buggers. It being unpopular also saves me from the embarrassment of responding to someone else's name accidently (like if there are three people named Sophie in a classroom or something).
This is also more of an empirical judgement of the name, but having a name as soft as Estelle whilst living in North-West England is not a desired combination. Bit of a juxtaposition.
Overall, Estelle is a decent name but other people's opinions and its rising popularity are mucking it up for me. I'd prefer if the name remained less popular than names like Amelia or Sophie, as it keeps it a special name.
In case anyone is wondering, the correct way to pronounce the name Estelle (at least where I am from) is Eh-stehll. You do not pronounce the e on the end, otherwise you would get Eh-stehll-eyh." Feb. 6, 2019:
"It is great, original and unique. I am proud of it. Not old fashion to me. If you think so think Victoria.... Lovely and distinguish names." Nov. 7, 2017:
"To the comment below, my mum's name is Estelle, and she is pretty much always referred to as that, but sometimes people will call her Stelle or Est. Never Stella though. x" Jun. 7, 2009:
"I Love this name so much! its really pretty I would definetely use it for my daughter. I know a young lady named estelle and she is absoluetely gorgeous! Great choice!" Nov. 23, 2008:
"A 90-year-old great-grandmother of this name (or the name Gertrude or Agnes or Mabel) today would probably have been in her 50s in the early 1970s. A 90-year-old woman from those days would probably have been born in, say, 1883. Actress Estelle Winwood, of course, was born THAT year, and died in 1984 aged 101." Jul. 11, 2008:
"this name is really pretty, who cares if it is old fashioned? Not me" May. 23, 2008:
"my name is Estelle and I hated it growing up-I was born in 1972-so everyone was Jennifer or Heather. Now I like it alot more but I always get comments on it. And no I was not named after a 90 yr old woman!" Dec. 17, 2007:
"well my name is estelle, and peopple pronounce it wronge, they say estella , it gets quite annoying, Everyone tells me that my name is really old fasion, i have never meet anyone with my same name." Jun. 7, 2005:
