What's the source for the meaning of Casimir given in the database?
Bear and one anonymous commenter seem to have a more credible (to me) idea of what it could mean.

With apologies to Bear for the spotlight, but it just seems so much more probable to me that the name is would mean something about ruler + peace, rather than destroy + peace. If it definitely means destroy + peace, I'm thinking, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and extraordinary is always interesting.
