Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name cassie means unheeded prophetess. It is a variation of Cassandra or Catherine. In Greek mythology, Cassandra (in Greek: Κασσάνδρα) is a Trojan prophetess, one of the nineteen children of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. In Homer's 'The Iliad' Cassandra's prediction of the fall of Troy was unheeded. Cassie is also the name of the perfume extracted from the flowers of Vachellia farnesiana, commonly known as sweet acacia or needle bush.
