It also means "of the stars" or "starry one/maiden" in Greek.

It's a beautiful name. I love the meaning! But when pronounced, it sounds like Hysteria...that kind of kills it for me.

Actually, Asteria was her own goddess, and had nothing to do with Astraea. She was the Titan goddess of oracles and falling stars, daughter of Coeus and Phoebe, sister of Leto (Artemis and Apollo's mother), and the mother of Hecate (goddess of magic, crossroads, ghosts and necromancy).
