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!
