Jaspar is a striking respelling of the boy's name Jasper, which means "treasurer." Both forms are heading toward an epic revival alongside other vintage-inspired names, such as Oliver, Jack, and Theodore. During the 1800s, Jasper became a much-beloved name in England and never truly went out of style. You may associate it with the unrequited love interest of Kate Winslet's character, Iris, in the festive rom-com The Holiday. Interestingly, despite being associated with British literature and movies, Jasper has Persian roots and is inspired by the gemstone of the same name. By changing that little “e” to an “a,” Jaspar becomes an even rarer gem than its namesake, ensuring your little one stands out among their peers.
