The English word "circa" comes from the Latin "circa," which means "around"; "circa" is a variation of the Latin "circum." "Circum" has been carried into English in words like "circumvent" (going around an object), "circumstantial" (a non-essential part of something, link circumstantial evidence) and "circumference" (the distance around the outside of an object). "Circa" did not enter the English vernacular until the mid-19th century.
