    I do love this name. It's elegant but accessible, and a classy nature name. I would have to dig, but I believe it was used sparingly in the early to mid 1900s.

    Cassia makes me think of the quote from The Duchess of Malfi: 'What would it pleasure me to have my throat cut with diamonds? or to be smothered with cassia? or to be shot to death with pearls?' So for me it's always had a luxurious feel, something you'd find in a Tudor court. It's a name you can imagine Shakespeare using for one of his heroines.
