Greek, feminine variation of Anastasios

Anastasia Origin and Meaning

The name Anastasia is a girl's name of Greek, Russian origin meaning "resurrection".

Anastasia is the feminine form on Anastasius, a Greek name derived from the word anastasis, meaning "resurrection." It was a common name among early Christians, who often gave it to daughters born around Christmas or Easter. There are handful of saints named Anastasia, including the patron saint of weavers.

Anastasia is no longer a forbidding regal Russian name, but is now seen as a viable—and increasingly popular—American option, elegantly beautiful.

Anastasia's greatest claim to fame is via the "lost" daughter of the last czar of Russia, whose story has been told and retold in books and movies.

Anastasia was well used in ancient Britain and in Ireland as well as Russia.
