name pronunciation

So, my name's Nastassja, and I live in the United States. As such, I get a lot of people who look at my name and ask me how to pronounce it. Unfortunately I have a bit of a speech impediment (from a cleft lip and palate), so usually just saying my name doesn't really help people pronounce it correctly. Lately I've tried telling people to just turn the j into a y, but still many people don't know how to deal with the name. So my question is, how would you pronounce "Nastassya"?

Also, if you happen to know how to pronounce this name, how would you recommend I tell others how to pronounce it without relying on my own ability to say my name clearly?

As a bonus, does anyone have a name that they feel is pretty easy for those in their country of residence to pronounce, but somehow is always mispronounced?
