This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Anastásios (Αναστάσιος)”, from “anástasis ‎(ᾰ̓νᾰ́στᾰσῐς)”, meaning “resurrection, rebirth”, which in turn is composed of three elements: “ana- ‎(ᾰ̓νᾰ-)‎” (up) plus “hístēmi (ῐ̔́στημῐ)” (I stand) plus “-sis ‎(-σῐς)” (suffix to form abstract nouns or nouns of action). In turn the name means “resurrected”. The name Anastasius and its more common female counterpart, Anastasia, were often given to Greek children born around December 22 or around Easter during the early days of Christianity. It is the name of several early saints, e.g. Saint Anastasia, a Christian saint and martyr who died at Sirmium. In the Orthodox Church she is commemorated as the great martyr Anastasia, the deliverer from potions (Greek: Hagia Anastasia Pharmacolytria). Anastasius I (Latin: Flavius Anastasius Augustus) was Byzantine Emperor from 491 to 518. Anastasios II (Greek: Ἀρτέμιος Ἀναστάσιος Β΄), († 719), was the Byzantine Emperor from 713 to 715. Anastatica is a monotypic genus with the type species Anastatica hierochuntica. It is also called “resurrection plant”.
