Cassia is the female form of Cassius, an Ancient Roman family name possibly derived from Latin cassus meaning “empty, vain”. It also means “cinnamon” in Latin and Greek, deriving from Hebrew qetzi’ah (cassia, cinnamon) (where the names Keziah comes from) from root word qatsa meaning “to cut off, strip off bark”. The name is pronounced either kash-uh or kas-ee-uh.
