    Fia can also be the nickname for Fiona, which I think is a beautiful name. Its feminine, the sound is beautiful, and the meaning is lovely, too.

    Are there any Russian, Ukranian, or Irish words that you think could work as a name? Like are there any words or names you love that could work when translated to any of those? In example, Ashlyn is Aislinn in Ireland, and the word "fate" is Dolya in Russian (I could be wrong, though).

    I like fiona, jist like I like ophelia - both remind me of feline kitty cats unfortunately. & I havent tried translating any of them, thats a idea. & I believe I said in another post I like Aislinn burt to many people in my family would connect it to a local town.

    I do like the idea of Anastasia without the Ana. But im not sure if it sounds undone or people may think or say stacy instead which I dont like. I do think pronounced like 'sta-sha' or 'stas-ja' - if im even saying them correct would be cute. Wdyt?

    There are a lot of ways to pronounce Anastasia, it just depends on the dialect of the speaker. On this website there are many ways to pronounce (you get a visual pronunciation and 2 audio clips for 2 of the pronunciations) but I'm sure there are many other ways. Whichever one you like you can form a nickname based on the sound.

    Anaia "uh-nai-ah" or Anais "uh-nai-ihs" or "uh-nai-ees" could be nicknames for Anastasia.

    Anastasia: ah-nah-stay-sz uh is the most common pronunciation, Sia "sz uh" could be the nickname.
    Anastasia: ah-nah-stah-zia is the pronunciation of Greek origin, but I like the nickname option of Zia.
    Anastaia: ah-nah-sta-ia is another Greek pronunciation, and the nickname could be Nana or Nani.
    Anastasiya: ah-nah-stah-see-ya is the most common pronunciation in Russia, and the nick could be Sia.

    I think its a beautiful name, and the meaning is wonderful. "Resurrection" could be a hint to starting anew!
