Meaning:Treasurer; Precious stone
Parents thinking of naming their baby boy Jasper should welcome the Persian meaning of “treasurer.” Speaking of treasure, Jasper is also the name of an opaque quartz gemstone, which is taken from the French word jaspre, giving Jasper an alternative but connected meaning of "precious stone." And just like gemstones, Jasper is a multi-faceted name! It’s the name for one of the Magi—a.k.a. the Three Wise Men—who is said to have brought gifts to the newborn baby Jesus on Christmas Day. With such a well-rounded name, baby Jasper will have plenty of glittering paths to choose from.
