"My name's Anastasia and even though people find it weird for an African to bear that name, I absolutely love it." Apr. 18, 2016:
"My first name is Anastasia and I love both my name and its meaning! In my country it's spelled Ah-nah-stah-see-yah. But I also love English pronunciation. It means "resurrection - the one who will be born again". Everyone tells me my name is adorable when they hear it. The only two things I dislike is that many people have trouble spelling it correctly and that because of it's length people will always try to shorten it. Nicknames people usually use for me are Annie, Ana, Stasia, Nastia. Even though it's long, I love it just as it is. I dislike diminuitive Stacy. I only know one or two persons named Anastasia. I wouldn't mind giving the name or some of it's diminuitives to my daughter if I ever had one." Oct. 6, 2015:

"My name is Anastasia. My mom didn't do her research and used Stacey as my middle name rather than as a nickname. Like others, I was teased a lot as a child, so used Stacey most of the time. As an adult, I use Anastasia professionally. The bad news: my married name starts with 'S' resulting in unfortunate initials. Parents beware!" Nov. 6, 2012:

"My name is Anastasia Nicole. I love my name! When I was little, I didn't like it because I thought it was too long and because the wicked step-sister from Cinderella was named Anastasia (LOL) Now I have grown to love my name so much. It has many nicknames and EVERYTIME I tell someone my name, I get a compliment! Usually it's "that's a very beautiful name!" Thanks mom!" Feb. 6, 2012:
"I love my name! I like the full version but also love all of my nicknames: Asia, Ana, Anya, and something I can't spell pronounced like "staige." I hate Stacy though, it just doesn't fit me or the name IMHO. I love the uniqueness of my name though, and everyone compliments it!" Jun. 1, 2010:

I think that once I am done with school and am out in the "real world", I'll be using it more often." Apr. 2, 2008:

"I think Anastasia is one of the most beautiful names i know. I first learned the name in a book about the last grand duchess Anastasia." Jul. 8, 2007:
"This name reminds me of Anastasia Krupnik of Lois Lowry's series of books--which is a very positive association, as that Anastasia is quirky, spunky and smart. Anastasia is also a beautiful, dignified name that, as others have mentioned, really stands out in a crowd." Mar. 26, 2007:
"I named my first daughter Annastacia. I've spelled it my own little way. This name is the most beautiful name I could have ever picked! It screams grace and beauty. My husband and I sometimes use Anna, but Annastacia is usually the norm. Who wants to shorten such a beautiful name? As well the name is Greek, not Russian. I think people get confused because the Duchess was from Russia." Feb. 22, 2007:
"I love my name! I also go by Stasia, Staige, or more commonly by my full name, Anastasia. I am actually 1/4 Greek and my name is Greek and not Russian. It means Resurrection and I was born 2 days after Easter. I have heard way too many compliments on my name ever since i can remember." Feb. 11, 2007:
"As I am from Ireland and my parents are old fashioned my brother and I were called after our Grandparents. I got the name Anastatia which is said the same way as Anastasia. The people in the hospital wrote my name down wrong on my birth cert so I spell it Anastasia. My Grandmother's nic name was "Sta". I am called Ana for short. When I was little I got teased about my name alot and often got called nasty names, I use to hate my name. But now that I am older I really love my name as it makes me stand out of the crowd. In Ireland it was a common name for a girl, but as time went on it has been lost. I am glad that in other countries it is getting more popular." Jan. 18, 2007:
"My wife is Anastasia and my nickname for her is the middle sound "Staj", pronouned like "star" but with a "g" sound like the French "gigi" at the end. She loves the nickname and everyone now knows her by that name." Oct. 31, 2006:
"This is my name, and I love it. It's always a conversation starter, people often comment on how beautiful it is, and it has several diminutives, such as Ana, Ania, Stacy, Stacia, Tasia, but I prefer to go by my full name. It can also be pronounced differently depending on what you like (American or European style)" Jun. 14, 2006:
"Contrary to popular misconception the name Anastasia is not a Russian one but a Greek one, it derives from the Greek word ęAnastasię which means resurrection. My daughteręs legal name is Anastasia." Jun. 11, 2006:
"one of my friends is named Anastasia and so is her mom. her nick name is Analia and her moms is Stasia.i love the name i think its really pretty!" Dec. 27, 2005:
"Anastasia is my name. I always get a positive reaction when I meet new people. Also people will usually ask if I'm Russian. I'm actually Greek and I educate people that the name is actual Greek origin. The meaning of my name is what I like best about it, it means resurrection." Nov. 23, 2005:
"Anastasia is a beautiful name for a girl. It is unique and you can get a ton of cool nicknames from it. I am going to name my baby Anastasia after the last Grand Duchess of Imperial Russia. If you name your daughter this take pride in knowing that you are naming her after a beautiful young girl with a great sense of humor and vivacious spirit. Even when she was a prisoner of war and had to endure horrible things, she kept her humor and joy with her and entertained her family through sorrow. She was executed with her family at only seventeen.
I havea close spiritual relashionship with her and I know that my first girl is goingto be named after her." Aug. 9, 2005:

"I baptized my daughter Anastasia, after my mother. She carries the name. We?re Greek and the name is very meaningful, meaning rise again or resurrection. With Greek Orthodox we also have name days. Anastasia?s name day is on Easter, due to the significance of the meaning." Oct. 23, 2018:
"My first name is Anastasia. I love the name and its' sound and amy happy to have it. However I'd much rather be called by my full name than by all the different nicknames. And there's that one nickname I absolutely loathe but it gets used almost all the time - Nastya. I also frequently get called Nastasia which I also dislike. I like Stasya or Asya but it's rarely used. Otherwise I'd never change my name, it means way too much for me." Jan. 16, 2017:
"My granddaughters name is Anastasia her nickname is Zia. She is a beautiful and playful child. I didn't like the name at first but I love it now. So happy my son and daughter named her this!" Jan. 23, 2015:
"I absolutely love my name even though it gets mispronounced a lot one time on a ski mountain i fell and girl named Anastasia helped me up she thought it was hysterical that we were the same age and had the same name but the name is unique and I love it" Jan. 8, 2014:
"My daughters name is Anastacia Rene. I chose that name for my first born when I was seven watching Cinderella. Its a beautiful, strong name that reflects her personality. Since she was born five years ago, I have always called her Anastacia. Although I do like Staci." Oct. 20, 2012:
"I chose Anastasia for my baptismal name. Obviously I had to have loved it to choose it. People call me Ana for short because Anastasia can be quite a mouthful to say. I adore most of the nicknames derived from it, but I hate "Stacy" with a passion. Not sure why, maybe it's because I don't pronounce it like the 1997 20th Century Fox movie (anna-stay-zhuh). I say it closer to the Greek/Russian way: ah-nuh-STAH-syuh." Jun. 1, 2009:
"i think ariel analia or analia ariel is a good name for a girl" Jan. 10, 2009:
"Anastasia is a really pretty name no offense but bess is a name for cows" Dec. 20, 2008:
"No offense, but Bess is a dumb name, dude. Anastasia, though it may be a mouthful, is a very beautiful and regal name. It means 'resurrection' in Greek." Oct. 4, 2008:
"Anastasia is such a pretty name! No ofense but Bess is a cow's name" Oct. 1, 2007:
"i think that anastasia is the most beautifuul name in the world. whenever i hear it i think of a beautiful girl who is very graceful, and statuesque with piercing eyes. it's one of those names that even though you can short form it, i'd rather not." May. 31, 2006:
