Jasper Name Meaning

Jasper is the English version of Caspar. Caspar is a character in Bible. Caspar was a Magi who visited Jesus after his birth and gave him than incense. The name of Casper and his other companions isn't mentioned in the Bible but the name is given in other texts and accounts of the incident. Etymologically, Caspar comes from the Persian word Gaspar for ‘treasurer, or treasure bringer’ which is compatible with the fact that Caspar brought some gifts for Jesus. In another hypothesis, Jasper is an English word for the reddish gemstone. If we follow the history of this word, we will reach another Persian word which is yašp. Yašp means ‘spotted or freckled stone’.

This is my son's name. We loved the meaning and the'spelling (because it was a unique name for our common last name). It is always spelled and pronounced incorrectly. We pronounce it, as it is spelled "Kay-Din". I find that people in our part of the country think it is the'same as Cayden (a variation of Aiden). Kadin & Cayden have two different meanings.

Our son Jasper Edward was born in December 2017. We got a lot of positive remarks from friends and we both think It's a really cool name. It also seems to be on the rise here in the UK as two other friends said it had made their short-list for their babies born last year too.
