If you really want a meaning for Annastasia, then it would heve to be Anna (as Miranda correctly noted) plus the Greek verb "histamai" (*) meaning "to stand, to rise". Hence your name could mean "the grace of God stands" in Hebrew-Hellenic pidgin.

(*) Anastasia is from the Greek, "ana-" (to repeat) and "histamai".
