Julius Caesar burned down the Library of Alexandria. :(

In Latin it would be pronounced ki`sar (long i, short a, emphasis on first syllable).

What sort of a pompous egomaniac would name their son this? Okay, I'm pretty sure no one would, but then again, people are crazy.

Julius Caesar was famously bald, and although then as now bald men had a sexy reputation, he was embarrassed about it and combed his remaining hair forward to hide his very high forehead. His laurel wreath also came in handy.

And, no, he did not burn down the Library of Alexandria. When he died, Christianity hadn't happened, and this act of vandalism was a Christian act.

It's possible Julius Caesar accidentally set part of the Alexandrian Library on fire, but it was not destroyed by Christians as Anneza has said--its final destruction was by Muslims in 642.

It IS pompous, and it sounds like a title rather than a name. Nobody could ever be like Julius Caesar, or any ancient Roman for that matter.

Not sure what's wrong the the above posters, people name their kids this all the time, just not with this spelling. I think the most common spelling nowadays is "Cesar," especially in Spanish-speaking countries, and it's not seen as pompous at all.

Omg wow! Wonderful meaning! :D

Caesar Flickerman was that talk show host with blue hair from the Hunger Games. Stanley Tucci played him in the movie.

Name of the Day - October 7, 2012.

Also the name that will be used by the Weather Channel during the 2012-2013 winter season (following Brutus).

I never knew that "Caesar" likely meant "hairy". *Very* descriptive! But is it a good description or a bad one? I could imagine giving this name to a furry dog, with that in mind.

Caesar himself believed it meant 'elephant killer' from a north African language. This was because an ancestor killed an enemy elephant during the first Punic War against Carthage. An elephant appears on coins issued by Caesar.

This is a nice name. I don't hear it a lot and I think this spelling CAESAR is pretty awesome. I prefer the Roman spelling over CESAR, the Spanish version.
-- Bajafresh  9/13/2013
I was so sure it meant 'sky king' or something like that, because the 'cae' part was so similar to the Latin word for 'sky.' ;o;
