Meaning & History

Latinized form of the Greek name Αναστασιος (Anastasios), which meant "resurrection" from Greek αναστασις (anastasis) (composed of the elements ανα (ana) meaning "up" and στασις (stasis) meaning "standing"). This was the name of numerous early saints and martyrs, including a 7th-century monk and writer from Alexandria who is especially venerated in the Eastern Church.
