Cezar Name Meaning & Origin
Origin of the name Cesar:
From the Latin Caesar, a name of uncertain etymology. Some believe Caesar to be derived from caedo (to cut); others think it to be from caesius (blue-gray). Another suggestion is that it is derived from caesaries (hairy, with abundant hair). The name was borne by Gaius Julius Caesar (100? - 44 B.C.), the Roman general and statesman who was dictator of the Roman Empire from 49 to 44 B.C. Caesar was subsequently used as the imperial title of the emperor of Rome from Augustus to Hadrian, and for the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. It later evolved into a vocabulary word for an emperor or dictator.
