AstaPretty name that i don't hear often, means "Brought as a Star"
Asta is a short form of the name Astrid, which is used in Scandinavian languages. Astrid is derived from ass "god" and frithr "beautiful; beloved." I think the submitter of this name may be thinking of names like Aster, Astra etc. which are derived from Greek astros "star."
