I posted about Annika and the varying pronunciations got me wondering about Anastasia. How do you pronounce it? I say Anne-ah-stay-shuh. Which do you prefer Annika or Anastasia? Nickname ideas?

I say it basically the same way you do. Anna-STAYZ-shuh. I know a girl with this name, and I think it fits her quite well. Her nickname is Stasia (STAYZ-shuh). I didn't used to like it very much, but since I do know someone with the name, it has changed my view toward it...I sort of like now. I wouldn't use it myself, and i think its one of those names that better used in moderation.

Oh, and I do prefer Anastasia over Annika

I love Anastasia! It has grown on me in the past couple of months. I am actually using it for a story, but I don't think I would ever use it in real life. It's very girly and pretty in my opinion.

Anastasia Louise is a guilty pleasure combo of mine!

I definitely prefer it over Annika, which reminds me of Danika, but without the "D"!

I adore the name Anastasia! I've loved it since I was a little girl probably because when I was little I loved the movie Anastasia. I've always prefered the nickname Annie because it honors my grandmother. I prefer it very much to Annika.

I love the name. My sister's name is Stacia (prn Stay-shuh), and people would always wonder when she was growing up if her full name was Anastasia. I think its a very pretty name.

I pronounce Anastasia the same way as you do, and I love it. I probably like it a little bit more than Annika, but theyr'e both very pretty.
