Did you actually mean anastatica or anamnestic?
A female given name from Ancient Greek.
Etymology: From the name of a 4th-century martyr, Ancient Greek Ἀναστασία (Anastasía), from ἀνάστασις (anástasis, " resurrection"). The name, and its male counterpart Anastasius, were originally given to children who were born around Eastertime during the early years of Christianity.
Anastasia (from Greek: Ἀναστασία, romanized: Anastasía) is a feminine given name of Greek origin, derived from the Greek word anástasis (ἀνάστασις), meaning "resurrection". It is a popular name in Eastern Europe, particularly in Russia, where it was the most used name for decades until 2008.
Anastasia is a 1956 American historical drama film directed by Anatole Litvak. Set in interwar France, the film follows the story of a suicidal amnesiac, whose remarkable resemblance to the Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia — the youngest daughter of the late Emperor Nicholas II who is rumored to have survived the execution of her family — draws her into a plot devised by the former White Russian General Bounine and his associates to swindle from the grand duchess an inheritance of 10 million pounds. However, the ultimate hurdle to their plan is the exiled Russian aristocracy — in particular the Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna — whom their handpicked claimant must convince of her legitimacy if they wish for their scheme to succeed. The origins of Anastasia lie in a play written by Guy Bolton and Marcelle Maurette, which was in turn inspired by Anna Anderson, the most famous of the many Anastasia impostors who appeared after the death of the Imperial family in July 1918. An animated remake of Anastasia was released by Fox Animation Studios in 1997; however, the stories have few similarities.

If Mrs. Anderson had indeed been Anastasia, Queen Marie would have recognized her on the spot. ... Marie would never have been shocked at anything, and a niece of mine would have known it. ...
