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.
An old Greek name and also that of an ancient saint--the patron saint of weavers--Anastasia was well used in ancient Britain and in Ireland as well as Russia.
