Origin:Greek
Meaning:resurrection
The Greek girl’s name Annastasia means “resurrection.” Though its connection to Russian heritage is deeply tied—with films like Anastasia and legends to boot—Annastasia comes from the Greek word anástasis, which gives it its meaning. The film Anastasia tells the story of a lost princess who was unknowingly reunited with her grandmother. It was loosely based on the disappearance of an imperial Russian family and the “found” princess, Anastasia Nikolaevna. When the film came out in 1997, this lovely name made a major come back in the baby name charts, but has seen a dip since. But if you’re looking to strike that unique chord even more thoroughly, the spelling of Annastasia will give that flair while still coming with an interesting story.
