actingfun Says:


I love the name Casimir, especially with the nickname Caz. If anybody was wondering, the name is pronounced CAZ-i-meer. I know that was confusing when I first found it.

GP which would make a fabulous middle, or a first if I could summon the courage to do it. Cas is a cute, strong nickname which feels very wearable.

My son's name is Casimir- my husband's parents are from Poland. I didn't like it at first, but now I'm in love with the name. So strong and unique. He goes by Cas or Casi.

"Announcing Peace." What a great meaning.

LostMargaret Says:


This is totally importable. Caz? YES. Plus a brilliant meaning and a really cool St. Casimir. I would feel a little uncomfortable using it without any Slavic connections, though...
