The name Easter is of English origin and means "Goddess Of Fertility, Spring." The origin is the culture in which the name originated, or in the case of a word--the language in which it most appears.
From the Old English Eastre from the German word Ostern and east. Possibly a derivative of Eastre, the goddess of Spring. Easter was originally the celebration of Ishtar, the Assyrian and Babylonian goddess of fertility and sex. After Constantine Christianized the Empire, Easter was changed to represent the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
