Comments on Casimir:

It’s origin is Polish and it is sometimes considered to mean peacemaker. However, it is comprised of two Slavic words; kazic “to destroy” and mir “peace” or alternately mer “great. With this interpetation it means literally “Great Destroyer/Destroyer of Peace”. It was especially popular among Polish immigrants in the early 1900s in the United States.

It took me a few minutes to let it sink in, but after better understanding the pronunciation, and thinking about all the potential middle names to go along with it, I’m really starting to find a warm spot for it. What a nice (elegant) name!

    I’ve been pretty good thanks 🙂 I’m in the middle of Year 12 though, I just can’t wait for it to be over so I can get out into the world and not have to worry about five billion assignments and seventeen different folios (not really, but quite a few). How are you?

        Once I’ve finished I’m packing up and going to America, well as soon as I’ve saved enough money. I have friends and kind of step-family (step-mum’s family) over there, in New York state, so it should be a lot of fun 🙂 I don’t really know what I want to *do* yet, as in a career, but I’m not too keen on uni at the moment. Maybe once I’ve finished school and had some time to just relax and not have to worry about deadlines and assignments and bodies of work I’ll be able to make a decision about further study. At the moment though it sounds like hell haha.

    Coetzee may well be after the author J.M. (I think those are the initials?) Coetzee. Otherwise, it’s a pretty crazy coincidence, with the spelling and all. I think Rudy, Thierry and Sunday are really nice and interesting too.
