Comments for ATHANASIA:

No offense meant, but it sounds a bit too much like "euthanasia", in my opinion.

Sounds too much like a combination of Euthanasia and Anathesia to me.

It's quite pretty, but it sounds too close to "euthanasia" and would easily get confused with Anastasia.

Oscar Wilde wrote a poem called Athanasia, about the concept of immortality.

It means IMMORTALITY.

Euthanasia and Anesthesia are Greek words as well and may sound similar to someone less evolved.

It reminds me of "euthanasia", as well.

Greeks pronounce this name a-thana-SIA, with the stress on the last syllable. Most women with this name are called Sia for short.
In English the word Athanasia, a synonym for immortality, is pronounced atha-nasia, sounding like euthanasia.
So the name and the word are really pronounced differently, but I suppose people unfamiliar with the name would pronounce it like euthanasia.
