    "Anastacia"

    I always thought that Anastacia was a Russian girl's name, but now that I am learning Russian it doesn't seem like it could be a Russian name anymore.

    Does it exist in Russian? And how is it spelled/pronounced

    Настя не имя, а уменьшительно-ласкательное имя Анастасии

    Сестру Марины Цветаевой звали Анастасия. Ее "домашнее" имя было Ася.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    I have been pronouncing Анастасия wrong for 40 years!!! =:^((
    I always thought the stress fell on the third syllable, as it does in some of the diminuitives and in English.

    Funny how that works, isn't it? Boris, Vladimir, Gorbachev, Khrushchev -- it's a hard habit to kick at first... Not to mention that with Анастасия that its not just the stress that's off -- but it's like the spelling itself; it's NOT Аннастэйжа after all...
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Анастасия - sounds not so bad only like too archaic.
    There is a usual form Настасья.
