- Eustace mEnglish: from the Old French form of the Late Greek names Eustakhios and Eustathios. These were evidently of separate origin, the former composed of the elements eu well, good + stakhys grapes, the latter of eu + stēnai to stand. However, the tradition is very confused. The name was introduced in this form to Britain by the Normans, among whom it was popular as a result of the fame of St Eustace, who was said to have been converted to Christianity by the vision of a crucifix between the antlers of the stag he was hunting. It is at present out of fashion.Cognates: French: Eustache. Italian: Eustachio. Spanish: Eustaquio.
