Origin:Polish
Meaning:destroyer of peace; proclaimer of peace
Casimir is a primarily Polish masculine name celebrating those discontent with comfort and open to rocking the status quo. Derived from the name Kazimierz, the meaning of Casimir is two-fold, finding compelling interpretations from radically different roots. The first is from the Slavic element kaziti, "_to destroy," combined with _miru, meaning "peace" or "world." As a possible "destroyer of peace," Casimir may give pause until one remembers that with great upheaval comes great change and growth. In contrast, the name's potential root in the Polish element kazać, transforms its meaning into "proclaimer of peace." Representing two sides of the same coin, Casimir holds within it an enviable power to face challenges and welcome discomfort, knowing that peace will return once more.
