Casper?
Caspar?
Kasper?
Kaspar?

I want to choose the one that will minimise misspelling.. I know you'll say one of the ones with a C though which is a shame as I quite like it with a K confused

I teach a lot of Polish Kacpers.

Caspar. That's how my old college friend spelt his name.

Casper is too friendly ghost.
Not keen on the K spellings personally but if you went for that then the -ar ending is better.

Sounds like Caspar is the most common spelling at least... Thank you

I checked the name statistics and I think Casper is about 200 places higher than Caspar. I would want to choose the correct spelling of Caspar but thought it would constantly be misspelled.

I'm in Scandinavia and Casper and Caspar are pronounced differently - are they pronounced the same in the UK?
I would go for Casper personally but even if you pick a name that you think is well known world wide with a very standard spelling people will get it wrong (personal experience!) so pick the one you like the most as you will e correcting people anyway!

I know a Polish Kacper too! He's a very sweet boy if that helps.
