I didn't grow up with any other Esthers.
Povitsky: Me either.
But it's sort of nice because in classrooms you weren't with a million other Sarahs or Laurens.
Povitsky: What's your middle name?
Povitsky: That's really pretty. Mine is Lauren.
I'm so sorry, I feel like I just insulted your middle name.
Povitsky: No, not at all. Are you kidding? I would fantasize that that was my first name forever. No, don't even. So why did you get this name?
It's my great-grandmother's.
Povitsky: For me it's my grandmother. So that makes sense.
That's sort of how you get the name I think, unless it's a biblical thing.
Povitsky: Right, yeah. I feel like I don't know any Esthers. It's such an interesting name because it really does shape your identity. Automatically, out the gate, you're not like everyone else, you have a name no one's heard of. It already has an association with old people. It does shape who you are, which is crazy to think because it's such a simple thing, but there's no way this name hasn't shaped me to be who I am. It's such an integral part of me I feel like.
