Meaning of the baby name PARASKEVA.

  

PARASKEVA.  Slavic name, of Greek origin, meaning "Good Friday child."  Pascha is a pet form.  Also see note under the French form, Prascovie.  Usage:  Bulgaria (Параскева), Russia (Параскевы).

... It was once very frequent in the great empire, and it belonged to the brave maiden, Paraskeva Loupouloff, whose devotion to her parents suggested Madame Cottin's tale of Elizabeth, or the Exiles of Siberia, where the adventures, as well as the name, are deprived of their national individuality in the fashion of the last century. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
