Eustace come from Eustache, an Old French name. It is a combination of two late Greek names: Eustakhios (Good Grapes; Good Harvest) and Eustathios (Good Stability) from eu (good), stakhys (grapes), and stenai (to stand).
Eustace was brought to England by the Normans. It was rather popular in France and England of the 12th and 13th centuries (due to the influence of St. Eustace) but is now very rare (though used occasionally).
