Are they 'posh' names? I have a feeling that Jasper is and Casper isn't.
Struggling for boys names, and I like these, but I don't want anything pretentious.

So..thoughts on these, or any other ideas for slightly unusual

I love jasper!

I like both but sway towards Casper, I think it sounds a bit 'stronger' than Jasper.

Caspar makes me think of the ghost. I love Jasper though

I know a 'posh' Caspar and and a 'non-posh' Jasper. Jasper goes to a private school though.

Where do you live? I used to live in London - kids are called all sorts!

I like them both. Prefer Caspar, just.

I know one of each, neither posh! Both fab names, but I prefer Casper.

Jasper is a definite Tim Nice But Dim kind of name.

Casper is more European than posh. And I prefer it.

I'm South Wales. Neither are at all common around here, which is why I'm not sure where they 'fit' (a few Kacpers though, Crystal).

Thanks for the opinions. Swaying towards Casper.

Not worried about the ghost, that was about 2 generations ago now!
