Anastasia is a name whose popularity, until fairly recently, was found mostly in Eastern European countries. It is a form of the Greek male name Anastasios, which comes from the word meaning "resurrection."

Anastasia became more well-known in English speaking countries with the rise to fame of a woman in the 1920s who claimed to be Anastasia, the daughter of the last czar of Russia.
