What do you think of the name Esra for a girl? Pronounced És-ruh kind of like the name Ezra, but with an S.

  • To me it kind of seems like a nn for Esmeralda.

  • I think when people go to pronounce it they will always be saying Ezra. Agree with PP, sounds like you are just feminizing the name.

  • Hmmm... I guess I can see that. It's a popular girl's name in Turkish.

    But are you Turkish? 

    Not all names jump languages and borders equally.

    Yes, I'm Turkish. I've already decided on an English name for my daughter, as my husband is Canadian and I was raised in Canada, but I also want her to have a Turkish name that doesn't sound too difficult or weird in English. So I want objective opinions from native English speakers.

    We'll also need to choose a Turkish name for her when we go for her Turkish citizenship.

  • Now that we have more background, I think it's not weird at all. 
  • In that case I think it makes a lot more sense.
  • I love it.
