Boys Name: Jasper

Means "treasurer" in Persian. This name was traditionally assigned to one of the wise men (also known as the Magi, or three kings) who were said to have visited the newborn Jesus. It has occasionally been used in the English-speaking world since the Middle Ages. The name can also be given in reference to the English word for the gemstone. - quoted from Behind The Name entry

I like that Jasper isn't that popular but it does seem more popular in recent years than it was in the past. In recent years it ranked #218 in the USA, #107 in England and Wales, and it has ranked in the 70's for Canada, Australia and the Netherlands.

My mom really likes this name, and I do like the sound of it. I like it as a middle name or as a first name but I might not use it because I don't have as much attachment to it as I do to other names. Some combos I like are: Elias Jasper, Jasper Michael, Owen Jasper, Henry Jasper and Jasper Thomas.

What do you think of the name Jasper? 

Do you know anyone with this name? 

What other names would you pair it with?
