Fausta is a feminine name meaning “fortunate.” Taken from the Latin faustus, it was historically an intentional choice by parents who considered themselves blessed by the arrival of their little ones. As far back as 81 BC, legendary Roman general Lucious Cornelius Sulla named his twin children Faustus and Fausta. In 289 AD, Roman emperor Maximian gave his daughter the name Fausta, who then went on to become the second wife of Constantine the Great. If you’re in the same boat as Sulla and Maximian, feeling fortunate to behold your precious munchkin, Fausta is a truly endearing pick.
