Désirée

Désirée is a French female name, the French form of Desiderata, a Late Roman name meaning “desired”. It comes from Latin desiderare (to desire) via desidero (to desire, want, wish for) which seems to have originated from the phrase de sidere (‘from the stars’ or ‘of the stars’), made up of Latin prefix de- (of, from) and sidus (star, constellation).

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
