Name Meaning

German and Slavic: from the personal name Casper or Kaspar, which was especially popular in central Europe up to the 18th century. Originally from Persian kaehbaed, khazana-dar, or ganjvaer, all meaning ‘treasure bearer’, it was ascribed by popular tradition in Europe to one of the three Magi. Their supposed remains were taken to Cologne from Constantinople in the 12th century. See also Baltazar and Melchior .
