Bastian Family HistoryRecorded in over seventy surname forms including Sebastian, Bastian, Paustian, with diminutives Bast, Sebastiani, and Sebok, and patronymics Basten, Baston, Basting and Bestages, this is a European name but ultimately of Roman (Latin) origins. It derives from the ancient personal name of pre Christian times called 'Sebastianus'. This in a sense was 'locational' in that it described a person who came from a place in Greece called 'Sebastos' meaning 'revered' or in other words, a holy place. This may in fact have meant that the original name holders were holy men, but that is conjecture.
