Cosima is a feminine given name, the feminine version of the name Cosimo. It is derived from the Greek word κοσμος or kosmos, meaning "order, decency." Cosmo was a fourth-century saint who was martyred with his brother Damian. They are the patron saints of medical doctors. An Italian male version of the name is Cosimo.[1] Authors Pamela Redmond Satran and Linda Rosenkrantz commented in their 2007 book The Baby Names Bible that the name sounds exotic and is a fashionable name for the daughters of members of high society in the United Kingdom.[2]
