Additional information: As the female variant of the Greek male name Anastasius, Anastasia has been used as a female name since around the middle ages in Europe. The meaning of the name is thought to be “resurrection”. Because of this, it was a name commonly given to female children born on or around Christmas day in many Greek Christian communities.

There are several saints named Anastasia. St. Anastasia of Sirmium was a fourth century martyr. December 25 is St. Anastasia's Day. St. Anastasia the Patrician lived in the sixth century. In order to escape the advances of Emperor Justinian she dressed as a man and lived in a monastery for twenty-eight years.

Anastasia is also the name of the daughter of Russian Tsar Nicholas II, who was executed with his family in 1918. Anastasia, a young girl at the time, is thought to have escaped before this happened. Stories have emerged about how Anastasia escaped, and a grave containing the bodies of the rest of her family did not contain a body that fitted her description. An alternate version of the story was told in the animated film 'Anastasia'.

Variations exist in the spelling of Anastasia, with common alternate spellings being Anastacia, Annastasia, and Annastatia. The name also boasts of many different variants internationally.
