ORIGIN AND HISTORY
Caesar is the English form of the Latin name, Caesarius. Caesar originally identified the Roman general and emperor Gaius Julius Caesar who lived from 101 BC to 44 BC.
Upon his death, Caesar’s nephew Octavius held the Roman throne and adopted the name Caesar as more of a royal title than a name. He called himself Augustus Caesar, or “Great King,” -- an etymological attribute that would later become Kaiser in German and Czar or Tsar in Russian. 
According to the Social Security Administration, Caesar is not in the top 1000 names for any year of birth in the last 15 years.
However, it held the following rankings in popularity in Sweden for the following years: 289th - as a boy's name (2006) 311th - as a boy's name (2004) 352nd - as a boy's name (2005) 
After the death of Octavius or “Augustus Caesar,” it was seldom used again as a name until the Renaissance when there was a renewed interest the writings of ancient Greece and Rome. Along with that renewed interest came interest in the names of the ancient Greeks and Romans. This occurred largely in Italy where many young Italians were soon christened Cesare. The name’s derivations and adoption then moved to Spain (Cesaro), France (César), and Britain (Caesar).
Later, in 18th-Century Britain and to some extent in what became the American colonies, some scholars and admirers of ancient Rome also christened their children Caesar, occasionally in combination with Julius.
