Casper the friendly ghost. But if you love it, go for it.

Really nice - classy. DS2 has a good friend called Casper. I like him too.

Or CaspAr? Two ways to spell? Both nice!

Happy - you have a classy dog!

Indeed I do grin

This has recently hit my radar and I really like it. We have pretty much decided on a name if the bump is a little boy, so this is already on the list for any potential number 2 child that is also a little boy!

We're currently keen on Sebastian, but called Seb, and would go for a second boy with the Kasper spelling with a nickname of Kas/Kaz. (Short names go really well with our ridiculously long surname but I would like them to have the full versions on their birth certificate, official docs and to use if they want to when they are older)

I get the friendly ghost connection but most names are going to have some sort of connection to either something in popular culture, family or friends so I'm not too worried about it.

I taught a Casper a few years ago and he was a really lovely young man.

Love it. Love it. Go for it.

I like it!

Completely biased but its a beautiful name!

A family member has recently used Casper for her little boy. It's definitely grown on me now but must admit that we're finding it hard not to refer to him as "the friendly baby". But the film was years ago and I don't suppose it'll be on the radar of anyone he grows up with so if you like the name you should use it.

Love it, its my nephews name smile

Love it, although I have one so may be bit biased.

Really like it but slightly prefer Caspian

My nephew is Caspar rather than Casper tho.

Absolutely love it.
This has been my favourite name for about 4 years now but my hubby is not keen so we went with another much loved name for our now 14mth old.

I like it too. Good choice.

Rhubarbgarden Sun 27-Jan-13 19:16:49

I like it. I don't think anyone will think you are strange; there are plenty around.

I love the name! It always makes me think of Danes, for some reason.

I adore it. Was top of my boy list 6 years ago but I had a daughter. Very recently I've heard it crop up a few times, one was the mum from 16 kids and countings last baby (all her others very popular names). I am gutted as I think it may be one that picks up rapidly in popularity before I get a chance to use it.

Caspar the friendly ghost! That's what I thought of straight away, I agree with one of the other pp's Caspian is nicer but I know of one little Caspian & he's referred to as Cassie (a bit girly for my liking) xx
