Casper or Jasper

Caspar. Or Caspian?

Caspar just makes me think friendly ghost ( even though spelt differently) sorry. And Hugo is very posh kind of trying too hard.

Caspian is fab!

I know a toddler Kasper and just held a baby Hugo yesterday and they are both gorgeous! I like them equally. I think Caspar goes best with your other children's names (in my opinion).

I have a baby Casper who is just coming up for 3 weeks old. Reactions have been mixed. Lots love it, but most of the boys in my form (age 13) have said it's a posh ghost's name. I love it though smile

Prefer Hugo to Hector.

Just wanted to point out that Hector means defender originally. It was Achilles in Greek mythology who tormented the Trojans after slaying Hector. Hector was brave and a good father, son and brother...
...and Eric Bana was the only good reason for watching the film Troy!

'Hector' from the Greek does not mean to harry or bully.

and, btw, it's a great name!

But in current English the verb 'to hector' means to bully, to torment. Just googled it.
