    Name Meaning

    English (Yorkshire): topographic name from Middle English claper, generally denoting someone who lived by a rabbit warren. In southern counties, however, it often denoted a clapper bridge, a rough or natural bridge across a stream. The Devon clapper bridge, common on Dartmoor, was made of flat stones laid across stone pillars. Alternatively, a nickname for a chatterer, from Middle English claper ‘the tongue of a bell or of a noisy person’.

    Americanized form of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) Klapper ‘chatterer’.
