Estella is Spanish for "star". It is unusual for a female Hobbit to have a name referring to a celestial object.
Other versions of the Legendarium
Estella was a very late addition to the canon. So late, in fact, that Tolkien did not include her in Merry's genealogy until after the first edition of The Lord of the Rings had been published. This late change took many years to be incorporated in all versions of the book, so that many extant copies are missing Estella's name altogether.
