Esmé (f) Formerly a boys’ name also. It was introduced
to Scotland from France in the sixteenth century by the
Duke of Lennox, Esmé Stewart d’Aubigny, cousin of
James VI, whose mother was French. The name appears
to be the past participle of Old French esmer, ‘to esteem.’ It is a decidedly Scottish name as far as the English-speaking world is concerned, having been more used by Scottish parents in the past than those elsewhere; but even in Scotland it is now little used.
