What is 'Stan' when translated from English to Italian?

Stasio is an Italian equivalent of the English name "Stan." The masculine diminutive in question serves as an affectionate nickname to the Italian Stanislao ("Stanislav"), whose original Slavic origins trace back to the combination of stani ("to become") and slava ("fame," "glory"). The pronunciation will be "STA-syo" for the nickname and "STA-nee-SLA-o" for the forename in Italian.
