Stacey is a gender-neutral name of Greek origin, steeped in history. It derives from the names Eustace, meaning "steadfast, fruitful," and Anastasia, meaning "resurrection". Initially a boy's name, Stacey began as a chic nickname for Eustace, a title brought to England during the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name made its debut as a girl's name in the US in 1949 before soaring into popularity. By the 1990s, Stacey was primarily a feminine title but has since taken a step away from the charts. The name Stacey is believed to have originated from the Old Greek name Eustace, meaning 'fruitful' or 'productive'. It was a popular name among early Christians and was given to Saint Eustace, a Roman general who converted to Christianity after seeing a vision of a crucifix between the horns of a stag while hunting. Over time, the name Eustace evolved and changed through various languages and cultures. In medieval England, it became Stace, and eventually Stacey. The name was often used as a surname, derived from the occupation of a person who worked with horses, such as a groom or stable hand. There are several variations of the name Stacey, including Stacy and Stacie, all ultimately derived from the same Greek root.
