Family name origins & meanings:
- English : from the personal name Eustace (Latin Eustacius, from Greek Eustakhyos, meaning ‘fruitful’, blended with the originally distinct name Eustathios ‘orderly’). The name was borne by various minor saints, but little is known of the most famous St. Eustace, patron saint of hunters, said to have been converted by the vision of a crucifix between the antlers of a hunted stag. In some cases this may be an Americanized form of a Greek family name based on Eusthathios, such as Eustathiadis or Eustathidis.
