Cassius Meaning
Roman family name which was possibly derived from Latin cassus "empty, vain". This name was borne by several early saints. In modern times, it was the original first name of boxer Muhammad Ali (1942-), who was named after his father Cassius Clay, who was himself named after the American abolitionist Cassius Clay (1810-1903). The name Cassius has Latin origins, as it is derived from the Latin word "cassis", which means "castle". It was a surname given to one of the most prominent Roman families, at a time when ornamental surnames were in fashion.
