Kazumi
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.

Kazu:
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.

Mi:
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.

edit: found more information.
