Caesar Name Meaning

From the Latin family name of the first Roman emperor, Gaius Julius Caesar (100–44 bc), which gave rise to vocabulary words meaning ‘emperor’ or ‘ruler’ in German (Kaiser), Russian (tsar), Arabic (qay?sar), and other languages. As a modern family name it is probably most often a humanistic re-translation into Latin of German Kaiser, but it is also found as an Americanized form of Italian Cesare and French César and Césaire. It is also found as an English surname, derived either from a medieval personal name taken from the Latin or a nickname for someone who had played the part of the emperor Julius Caesar in a pageant.
