That's like naming your child Grossa or Meana or Disgustinga. (no offense)

Because this is a Russian pet name, it doesn't have negative connotations despite being close to the English word "nasty". I always wished my name was Anastasiya instead of Faina.

Although in English the name Nastya [NAHS-tya] sounds strange, it's certainly one of the most sweet names in Russian. The name has a lot of different tender forms and widely used in Russian fairy tales. So, this name is associated with a beautiful, tender, diligent and selfless girl. The most popular tender names for Nastya (Anastasiya) are:
Nastena [Nas-TYO-na]
Nasten'ka [NAS-ten'-ka]
Nastyusha [Nas-TYU-sha]

The gymnast Nastia Liukin has a different spelling of the name but I imagine it's the same in Russian.

This is a rather ugly diminutive of Anastasia, even though it's a legitimate one. I don't like how it looks like "nasty" with an A rammed onto it.

I think it's a pretty nickname if you're Russian. But not if you're English. Funny enough I once heard of a porn star with that name. I thought it was just made up, but I guess I was wrong, ahah.

I prefer Anastasia anyway, and this nickname is just horrendous. It looks like nasty a.

My RA's name is Nastya. She's from Russia, but spells her name Anastasia. She pronounces it nice-tee-uh.

Nastja is a Czech, Slovenian, Croatian and Slovak form of Nastya.

Sadly this is not a name for English speakers, as we tend to associate many names with something negative, nasty a being this one. I know in Russia however, this is a very pretty and gentle name. I didn't like it when I first heard it, but now I find it very nice.

I find this name quite pretty (NAHS-tya like a person mentioned above). I prefer the spelling Nastia as in Nastia Liukin.

However, I don't think this name will be received too well in the English-speaking world, as people may call her "nasty-uh" or "nausea".
