Etymology & Historical Origin - Kash
Kash is the Americanized respelling of Cash. Cash is the English vocabulary word for money in the form of currency or coins. It is thought to come from the French word “caisse” which means “(money) box”. Some sources claim that “cash” is derived from an Indian word “kaasu” meaning “a coin”. Cash is also an Irish surname that developed from the English metronomic family name Cass or Casse which is the pet form of the female name Cassandra (from the Greek meaning “shining upon men’). While fighting in the famous Crusades of the 12th century, Europeans were exposed to the Greek legends of the Trojan War (wherein Cassandra figures in prominently as a future-telling prophetess whom no one believes). Her story was particularly popular in the Middle Ages and the name caught on. It appears as if the surname Cash developed in Dublin, Ireland around the 18th century whereas Cass as a surname has been around since the 12th century. As a male given name, Cash has been in use since the 19th century. American parents are famous for swapping the “C” names out for a “K”; perhaps it makes them feel more phonetically comfortable.
Popularity of the Name Kash
The masculine name Cash started to see some promise on the charts in 2006 so we weren’t surprised to see Kash appear in 2008. While Cash remains the more popular spelling in the United States, Kash has managed to come into circulation even if he remains on the lower end of usage. One thing’s for certain: all the Kash boys out there will go through life repeating, “Kash. That’s Cash with a K.” We agree the K spelling gives the name a stronger looking edge, but at the end of the day it’s a misspelling of Cash. Then again, if you’re a Kardashian fan, you may prefer the K respellings over the original C names. Kash and Cash are minimalistic, one-syllable names. If you chose this name for your son, then might we suggest you name his sister Penny?
