(ess-per-RONCE, French or ESS-per-rinse, English)- The French word for hope- L'Esperance. I like Esperanza too, but Esperance sounds softer to me, while Esperanza is kind of wild and loud, maybe because of the Z.

This is the French word for "hope." As a name, Esperance was most popular in France immediately following WWI.
