Hadassah: baby girl name meaning and popularity

Hadassah

A Hebrew name meaning "myrtle tree." And, much like waiting for a tree to grow, teaching little Hadassah how to spell her name is going to be an exercise in patience. At least it's just four letters repeated.

Nicknames:

Haddie, Dasha.

Famous people named Hadassah:

Model Hadassah Richardson; wife of former U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman, Hadassah Lieberman.

Fun fact:

In the Bible, Hadassah was a Jewish girl who caught the eye of the king of Persia and became his queen. Thereby known as Queen Esther, she had to hide her Jewish heritage, but this became a problem when Haman, one of the king's highest court officials, wanted to exterminate Jews. Esther wasn't having it, so she used a combo of brains and beauty to save the lives of many of her people.
