I think it could be from Japanese.

Therefore, Kazumi can be broken into two sections, kazu and mi.
The meanings of Japanese names can change depending on kanji used.

Can mean "peace" (see http://www.aboutnames.ch/japanese.htm and look down to Kazuko).
According to Kazuko in this database Kazu can also mean "pleasant".
Kazuko at http://japanese.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http://www2.gol.com/users/billp/students/kanjiname/ has Kazu meaning "friendly".
I just noticed I used Kazuko for all of those. That just proves the point that one name can have multiple meanings in Japanese.

Most popular is the kanji meaning "beauty/beautiful". Popular ending for a feminine Japanese name. Examples in database Emi, Akemi, Naomi, Natsumi and Yumi.
Hiragana mi can mean "fruits". See http://japanese.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http://www2.gol.com/users/billp/students/kanjiname/.

Hope that helps.
