Vashti most likely has Persian origins and perhaps means "beautiful" or "best".

It could also be related to Hebrew, meaning either "thread" or "when drinking" or "that drinks".

Interesting fact: the Hebrew alphabet doesn't have a V so Vashti was originally Washti, from the letter waw, the sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet; it's also a demonstrative article meaning "and" as well as meaning "hook" or "peg", used strictly for the hook/pegs that kept the curtains of the tabernacle in place.
