Meaning:Shining over man; Prophetess
Cassie is a girl’s name of Greek origin, meaning “shining over man.” Short for Cassandra, this darling moniker is most famously attributed to Cassandra, the prophetess in Greek mythology who foretold the fall of Troy. However, as the story goes, a curse on her predictions prevented anyone from believing her prophecies. With such a whirlwind of a tale attached to the name, it’s no wonder that many authors and creators name their most fearless and emboldened characters Cassie. Parents who also love everything that Cassie symbolizes will have no doubts about naming baby after the beautiful Trojan princess.
