Meaning:Resurrection; Steadfast; Fruitful
Stacey is a gender-neutral name of Greek origin that comes steeped in history. Stacey derives from the names Eustace, meaning “steadfast, fruitful,” and Anastasia, meaning “resurrection.” Initially a boy’s name, Stacey began as a chic nickname for Eustace—a title brought to England during the Norman Conquest of 1066. Stacey made its debut as a girl’s name in the US in 1949 before soaring into popularity. By the 1990s, Stacey was primarily a feminine title but has since taken a step away from the charts. Perhaps Stacey will live up to its meaning and resurrect soon, with baby Stacey leading the trend as a stellar example of why it’s an amazing name.
