Re: First Name: Kazimiera #general

Here is what I found.


Kazimiera f Polish - Feminine form of Kazimierz

Kazimierz m Polish - Polish form of Casimir

CASIMIR m English - to destroy greatness >from Slavic kazic "to
destroy" and meri "great, famous". Four kings of Poland have borne this
name, including Casimir III the Great, who greatly strengthened the
Polish state in the 14th century. The name also belonged to Saint
Casimir, a 15th-century Polish prince and a patron saint of Poland and
Lithuania.
