What do you think? And would your preference be for Ana-STAR-sia or Ana-STAY-sia?

Anna-stay-siya.

I've never heard the other pronunciation.

Lovely name for an Easter baby.

Very pretty name. I've only heard it pronounced Anna-STAY-zee-uh.

Ana-STAR-sia but that's because it is the Greek way of pronouncing itsmile

I know a girl called this and it is anna-star-zia. I would probaby say it the other way so am no help!

I like it although I wouldn't be brave enough to use it. would pronounce it Anna Stay sia.

LynetteScavo Wed 27-Jul-11 20:53:07

Ana-STAY-sia.

DS2 would have been Anastasia if he'd been a girl.

TanyaBranning Wed 27-Jul-11 22:19:51

I thought the Greek way was Anna-STASS-ee-ah?

Its a lovely name regardless

I have heard both pronunciations (and the AnaSTASSia one too) and love all. I love the Latin Anastatia too.
