Late 16C English Given Names: Notes on Cesar

Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names

Notes on the name Cesar

Cesar: Apparently English. His surname is Athelmer, which looks like a reflex of OE Æthelmær; this is a surprisingly archaic form, however, since even as a forename Æthelmær usually appears as Aylmer or the like in the Middle Ages (Seltén, II:30).
