Name Meaning

1 German: from Middle High German keiser ‘emperor’, from the Latin imperial title Caesar. This was the title borne by Holy Roman Emperors from Otto I ( 962 ) to Francis II (who relinquished the title in 1806 ). Later, it was borne by the monarch of Bismarck's united Germany ( 1871–1918 ). It is very common as a German surname, originating partly as an occupational name for a servant in the Emperor's household, partly as a nickname for someone who behaved in an imperious manner, and partly from a house sign.2 Jewish (Ashkenazic): ornamental name from German Kaiser ‘emperor’, adopted (like Graf , Herzog , etc.) because of its aristocratic connotations.3 Muslim: from Arabic qayṣar ‘emperor’, which, like 1, is of Latin origin, from the imperial title in the Roman Empire.
