Meaning of the baby name PRASCOVIE.

  

PRASCOVIE.  A French name, of Greek origin, meaning "Good Friday child." 

... that which we emphatically call Good Friday, the Eastern Church knows by the title that it bears in the New Testament, the Day of Preparation, Παρασκευή (Paraskewe), from πάρα (beyond), and σκεύη (gear or implements).  Thence, a daughter born on that holy day, was christened among the Russians Paraskeva; and the name that has been corrupted by the French into Prascovie, and which is called for short Pascha... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
