Name Meaning

English: from the medieval female personal name Cass, a short form of Cassandra. This was the name (of uncertain, possibly non-Greek, origin) of an illfated Trojan prophetess of classical legend, condemned to foretell the future but never be believed; her story was well known and widely popular in medieval England.
