Casimir, an English, French and Latin form of the Polish name Kazimierz.

EtymologyEdit

The name may mean "someone who destroys opponent's prestige/glory during battle", and is derived from the Slavic elements: kaziti "to destroy" and měr "prestige, fame". The latter element is also found in Vladimir, and is cognate to the Germanic and Celtic name element -mer or -mar (e.g. Dietmar) with similar meaning. It is often conflated with mir "peace, world", thus some researchers translate the name as "the one who reveals or establishes peace". Some sources[1][2] give the meaning as "proclamation of peace".[3] Several Polish kings have borne this name, including Casimir III the Great and Saint Casimir, a patron saint of Poland and Lithuania. The name was imported into Western Europe via Germany, where it was borne by some royalty. Feminine forms are: Casimira, Kazimiera.
