As you might imagine, Stacia is a variation of Stacy or a shortened form of Anastasia. The Greek name was popular during the 1910s and again between the 1960s and 1990s. These days, baby girls are more likely to have a mom or even a grandma with the name, but we could see it making a comeback. Pair it with a more current middle name like Olivia, Harper, Madison, or Luna to bring it into the 21st century.
