ORIGIN AND HISTORY
Constanza derives from the Latin name Constans, which means "steadfast." It is the same root as the English word "constant." Constans evolved into Constantius, and then to Constantina. In Spanish, Constantina transformed into Constanza. When Constantina translated to English, it became Constance. Therefore, it is fair to say that Constanza is the Spanish form of Constance.
In the United States, Constanza is a very uncommon name. It has not appeared in the top 1000 most popular girls' names in any recorded year.
In Chile, Constanza is a very popular name. It became a top 10 name in Chile back in 1991, and has fluctuated between the top spots. In 2005, Constanza was the number 1 most popular girl's name in Chile.
- The surname Costanza, usually considered an Italian surname, has connections to the Spanish name Constanza and the Portuguese name Constança.
