My hubby is afraid that Anastasia sounds too much like an African American name. We wanted to name our daughter Anya Lynn, but I really want a longer, more unique name (since my name is Patience Heart). So I think Anastasia Lynn is so beautiful! And we would call her Anya for short. What do you think?

My granddaughter's name is Anastasia & she is 1/2 black & 1/2 white. I was quite surprised that they chose that name because I thought it was a white name. I believe it is Russian.  As for Anya...I know several Anya's & they are all black.   Both names are cute.

I love Anya!! Anastasia just makes me think of 50 Shades of Grey now that I've read the books lol. I loved Aria if this babe was a girl but he is all boy. :)

Personally I like Anya. The only Anastasia I know is Korean.

I don't think it's an African name but personally, I don't like it at all. I like Anya though. Very pretty!

Also, you don't have to be of a certain descent just to name your child something from said descent...
