Reply to: Casimir review? by mirfak
I looked up Kazimir in my Slavic name book and the particle 'kazi, kaziti' is given as 'destroy'.
I guess the idea is that the name means 'destroyer of peace', making it a fitting name for a warrior or a conqueror.

ETA: I did some more digging and while 'kaziti' is no longer used in Croatian, it's a normal word in Slovenian and an on-line Slo-Eng dictionary gave the meanings as: to spoil, to mar, to blight.
