    hmm, imho АНФИСА and АНФИЯ is diffirent names...

    АНФИСА (древнегреческий) цветение, цветущая. (950 000 hits in google).

    АНФИЯ Римская (ум . 120), христианская мученица, пострадавшая в Риме в гонение императора Адриана, мать священномученика Елевферия Иллирийского. (3 000 hits in google)

    May be it will be something like Анфисочка...but I`m not sure, though.
    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Анфиска
    It's very derogatory. Only a very close friend may be called like that. More distant Anfisas may take offence.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    I think there is no 'real' diminutive for this name, so as Ася etc.
