Etymology & Historical Origin - Cesar

The name César is the French, Spanish and Portuguese form of Caesar, originating as a Roman imperial family name (à la Gaius Julius Caesar). Etymologically speaking, the name has uncertain origin although it’s thought to come from the Latin “caesaries” meaning ‘head of hair.’ The most famous name bearer, Julius Caesar, lived in the 1st century B.C. and is known for his military exploits as a Roman general and, as a Roman statesman, for his role in the gradual transformation of the Republic into the Roman Empire. The name Caesar was henceforth used as an imperial title and gave birth to the German and Russian words for emperor – Kaiser and Tsar, respectively.

Popularity of the Name Cesar

The usage of the name César in America is mainly influenced by the Spanish-speaking population, or those of Hispanic/Latino descent. The name first appeared in America in 1948, and it has been growing substantially right along with the Hispanic and Latino populations in the United States. The height of César’s popularity was right around the turn of the 21st century. Since then, as with many Spanish-influenced names, César has appeared to have reached a plateau. Studies are showing that as the second and third generations of Latino-Americans are growing into childbearing years, and as they assimilate more into American culture, they are letting go of their distinctly Spanish sounding given names. We find this disappointing, since the Spanish influence of names is quite romantic, poetic and ethnically diverse. César is an example of this. It’s strong, unique and carries with it an imperial resonance without sounding overly-dramatic or arrogant. We hope this one doesn’t venture too far down the charts. It’s a name for your little future leader, which goes along nicely with the one numerology with which it is associated.

    Children's Books on the Baby Name Cesar

    A Picture Book of Cesar Chavez (David A. Adler) - The selfless struggles of labor leader Chavez are given a tempered and lucid treatment in this educational overview. It only takes one page for the Adlers to zero in on the theme of inequality: “Chavez and others who helped put food on Americans’ tables often had no tables of their own, no real homes.” After losing their farm in the Great Depression, the Chavez family headed west, living an itinerant lifestyle as they moved from farm to farm—and shuttling young Cesar among 65 different elementary schools. The book focuses mainly on Chavez’s later fights for better wages and safer working conditions. An elegant introduction to a man who inspired thousands. Recommended for ages 9-12.

Without his 25 best friends in Ms. Lee's second grade, Cesar is "a puddle of sadness." Then he discovers other unattended classroom pets, and he relishes tanning under the French fry heat lamp in the cafeteria, playing hockey in the teacher's lounge, and making art in the guinea pig's room. A renegade class-mouse-gone-wild makes Cesar contemplate utter freedom, but minding Peace the turtle's advice, he follows his heart and returns to Ms. Lee's room. Recommended for ages 7-10.

    Cesar - Boy Baby Name - Historic Figures

    César Chávez (31 Mar 1927 – 23 Apr 1993) - César Estrada Chávez was an American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers (UFW). A Mexican American, Chávez became the best known Latino civil rights activist. His public-relations approach to unionism and aggressive but nonviolent tactics made the farm workers' struggle a moral cause with nationwide support. By the late 1970s, his tactics had forced growers to recognize the UFW as the bargaining agent for 50,000 field workers in California and Florida. Chavez was a charismatic, gifted speaker who inspired Latinos to band together and devote themselves to the farm workers' movement. Claiming as his models Gandhi and Martin Luther King, he called on his people to "Make a solemn promise: to enjoy our rightful part of the riches of this land, to throw off the yoke of being considered as agricultural implements or slaves. We are free men and we demand justice." After his death he became a major historical icon for the Latino community, and for liberals generally, symbolizing militant support for workers and for Hispanic power based on grass roots organizing and his slogan "Sí, se puede" (Spanish for "Yes, it is possible").
