I'm bad at typing out how I pronounce words but, anna-STAY-shuh.

an-ə-STAY-zhə with the last part pronounced somewhere between ja and sha. I also like a-na-STA-zya.

My favourite is the original Greek - a-na-sta-SEE-a.

Ann uh STAY zha. Can't say I enjoy it - too long and complicated, and Stacy is awful.

I think ahn-ah-STAY-see-ah is probably the prettiest way to say it... but my instinct is to pronounce it an-ə-STAY-zhə.

I prefer An-uh-STAH-zee-uh. It sounds more elegant and sophisticated to me. Like it would really suit an adult too. I find the 'stay-zee-uh' one childish for some reason.

Anna-stay-zhaI never know how to type out the gzhu sound. Like Giselle. The sound that G makes.

I think the Filipino pronunciation would be "a-na-STA-sha," so I prefer that to any other.
