As has been pointed out, Hadassah was the "Hebrew" name for Queen Esther
(Esther is believed to have originated >from Astarte), but since then Esther by
itself is considered a Hebrew name in its own right.

Regarding "Hudesa" the name Hudes is a Yiddish diminutive for the Hebrew
name Yehudis / Yehudit (in English Judith).
