The name was brought to Portugal by Stephanie of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (1837-1959), who was the wife of King Pedro V. She was very popular and beloved by the people, but died tragically at age 22. The most important Paedeatric Hospital in Lisbon is called "Estefânia" in her honour.

The name is roughly pronounced [shtə-FUN-yuh] in Portuguese.
