Caesar is a ♂ boy’s name.
Caesar was originally a Roman cognomen, which was popular with the Julier family (see Gaius Iulius Caesar).
It is not conclusively clarified, from which Latin term the name Caesar derived, but probably from “caedere”, which means “to cut out” or “to hit”. According to a legend, Gaius Iulius Caesar was supposedly born by Caesarean section, which is why he was called Caesar. Caesar therefore means “the one cut out of the womb”. Besides, Caesar is a Punic term for “elephant”.
