Etymology

Hester (HEHS-tər) is a Latin variant[1] of the Hebrew name Esther (אֶסְתֵר). The root of Esther means "hide" or "conceal" though the passive is "to be hidden." Alternately, the name can be derived from old Persian meaning "star."[2][3] The most famous fictional character bearing this name is Hester Prynne, the lead from Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter.

Fitzwilliam, "son of William," comes from the Norman French Fitz meaning "son of" followed by the father's name.[4] William comes from the Germanic Willahelm, itself dervived from wil "will, desire (to)" and helm "helmet, protection."[5]
