Estella

  1. A female given name from Latin.
    • 1861 Charles Dickens, Great Expectations, Chapter VIII:
      To stand in the dark in a mysterious passage of an unknown house, bawling Estella to a scornful young lady neither visible nor responsive, and feeling it a dreadful liberty so to roar out her name, was almost as bad as playing to order. But she answered at last, and her light came along the dark passage like a star.
