    I am a history buff, so I strongly associate it with the Caesars... However, I would have no problem naming my child Alexander (despite how many people died in his conquests).

    SO I saw the title and thought, "Caius, how cool!" then I read the rest of your post and thought oh yeah! Which is really funny since I have degrees in history and archaeology and spent a great deal of time studying Rome, Latin and Roman Britain! Still, I only thought about how interesting it would be to meet a Caius.

    I do see a connection with Caius and the Caesar family but I don't think that fact overwhelms the name at all. For me, the association wouldn't be strong enough to exclude it from contention. I think it's a fine name.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Alright, thanks all, I'm getting pretty convinced I don't need to let them Caesar's be a barrier. Appreciate the input....
