Ruprecht is a masculine name of German origin and is closely related to Robert and Rupert. Meaning "bright" and "fame," from the German terms hrōd and berht, Ruprecht is a descendant of the ancient Germanic name Hrodebert. One person who took said meaning quite literally was the abstract painter and sculptor Rupprecht Geiger. He received widespread acclaim for his concentration on monochromaticity and bright color-field paintings, winning the prestigious Reubens Prize of Siegen. Whether famed or not, your little one can shine bright in whatever they put their mind to.
