Really the nickname Caesar, actually caesar derives from the word caesaries, meaning shag, long hair. So Caesar, Caesar, it’s kind of “shaggy”.
According to Scriptores Historiae Augustae, the Phoenician word means “elephant,” because Caesar’s ancestor killed an elephant on the battlefield. However, according to the messages of Suetonius in Lives of Caesars in Etruscan, the word meant “divine”.
