Brimming with blossoming power, Kaiser is a boy's name of German origin with a lineage that runs deep into the core of Ancient Rome. Descending from the Middle High German word keiser, meaning "emperor," Kaiser was forged from the Latin imperial title, Caesar. Though the name, of course, derives from the famed dictator, Kaiser in actuality, represents Caesar's adaptation into an honorific title, designating a newly appointed leader. From the revered Roman leaders to the Kaiser emperors of the Austrian Empire, the name lives on in reference to a worthy figure capable of commanding an entire civilization.
