Been googling it but no meanings anywhere. Seems to be swedish or german....

Ancia is a place in Portugal.

Have you considered the possibility that it is not a name?

I've never heard of it as a German name. reminds me of Anthea.

Curious that Google can't find "Ancia" in any names website. Maybe you are not writing it correctly?

Flier Wed 06-Aug-08 09:29:25

I'm betting it is Dolgan.

It could be "Yakut". Unusual name, but not unheard of. It means "Emerald" in Turkish. And a lot of those tribes in Central Asia are Turkic, of course.
