Ancient Sanskrit word Astika (आस्तिक) literally means faithful, believing or having faith in God.
Reference of Astika is found in Panini (पाणिनि) where Astika refers to someone who believes in God. Mention of this name is also found in Mahabharata (महाभारत), Yagyavalakya (याज्ञवल्क्य) and Sushrut (सुश्रुत) with meanings like believing, pious and faithful.
Astika is not a popular name in the USA. Astika is a bit popular name in India. Here Astika is used by less than 25 people as per social media.
In our opinion Astika is a short and stylish name. Astika has a very nice meaning attached to it.
