head of hair
There’s more to Cesar than just salad. A favorite of Latino parents in the US, it’s an ancient Roman name (pronounced she-ZAR) that was likely derived from the Latin “caesaries,” which means “head of hair.” Regardless of his mane, Julius Caesar is the most notable historic person with the name (and an alternate spelling). The US baby-name charts first listed it in the mid-1900s, and it has grown substantially more popular ever since. TV’s “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan has no bone to pick with his historically important name.
