I don't care what Madonna says. I'm NOT calling her Esther

She says her strengthening faith in Kabbalah has also led her to detach herself from some of that pain by inspiring her to adopt a Hebrew name for herself: Esther. The names is derived from the Persian name Satarah, meaning "star."

"I was named [Madonna] after my mother," she explains. "My mother died when she was very young, of cancer, and I wanted to attach myself to another name. This is in no way a negation of who my mother is. I wanted to attach myself to the energy of a different name."
