The name Astoria may be derived from the London Astoria, a music venue in London, England, or the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, a famously luxurious hotel in New York City. This hotel was named after the Astors, a very wealthy and influential American family. The name may also be related to Astraea, a daughter of Zeus in Greek mythology who personified justice, and the middle name of her daughter Wendy. Astraea is derived from Greek meaning "star-maiden". The name may also be spelled Asteria, as shown on the Weasley Family Tree. Like Hyperion — her father's middle name — Asteria is the name of one of the Titans of Greek mythology.
Vega is a Spanish feminine name, meaning "meadow" or "fertile plains". In Arabic it means "swooping eagle". Vega is also the fifth brightest star in the sky and the second brightest that can be seen in the northern hemisphere. It is a part of the constellation Lyra; in this way, both Astoria's first and middle name can be related to the Black family tradition of naming its members after stars and constellations.
The first part of her surname, Malfoy, in French (mal foi) means "bad faith."
Potter is a very common surname of English origin. It traditionally refers to the occupation of making pottery, the well-known English children's author Beatrix Potter, or Potter's Field: the name for a burial ground for the unknown or unclaimed dead, particularly soldiers and orphans; the Potter family had many members that fit that description.
