I love love love the name Kaiser, it fits well with our last name and DH is on the fence but I'm sure I can convince him but is Kaiser too strange a name and how bad would you react if you met a boy with the name?

I hear Kaiser, I think Wilhelm.

Sorry, I'd think it strange - just makes me think of Kaiser Bill and WW1

X post Creature!

LadyB49 Sat 12-Dec-15 01:36:54

When I hear Kaiser I think Rottweiler or pit bull terrier.
Don't like it.

Nanofone Sat 12-Dec-15 02:22:29

I'm with Lady - it's an attack dog.

My first thought is that it's the same name Janelle from Teen Mom 2 used 😬 and when I first heard she'd used it I was shocked and thought of the war. It has an evil sound, to my ears!

Kaiser... seems rather dodgy to me: where I live this is a kaiser (the type of bread)!/image/kaiser-a-la-salade-de-thon-2876.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_490/kaiser-a-la-salade-de-thon-2876.jpg

I also can't get over the german meaning.

It would be the same as calling a child King, or Princess, or Tsar, or Duque.

Tartyflette Sat 12-Dec-15 02:32:42

It means Emperor, and is the same as Caesar or Tsar/Czar.
More suitable as a name for a large dog, IMO.
Also calls to mind Kaiser Soze, the weird informant/villain in the film The Usual Suspects.

Actually I kind of like it. BUT I wouldn't call my own child it (if I had had the balls DS would be Thor) and if he was a child in DC's class I wouldn't judge but would be dying to ask why you chose it but far too polite to say.
If you do go ahead (which I hope you do if you love it) you should be prepared for some to be a bit judgey.
People often pre-judge a name but re-evaluate based on their interactions with someone called it.

I think of Kasier rolls myself....sorry OP

Cerseirys Sat 12-Dec-15 05:27:39

Wilhelm (and therefore WWI)

All are what I think of when I hear Kaiser. Please call your baby something else!

Kaiser Wilhelm

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Sat 12-Dec-15 06:11:25

Makes me think of war immediately and I wouldn't want that association for my child

villainousbroodmare Sat 12-Dec-15 06:23:23

War, rottweilers... no.

tryingtocatchthewind Sat 12-Dec-15 06:26:51

How about Adolf or Genghis?

puthyjip43 Sat 12-Dec-15 06:27:50


CwtchMeQuick Sat 12-Dec-15 06:28:02

My first thought was the Kaiser Chiefs.
I kind of like it in a strange way but I agree it'd be better suited to a dog

TaylorKent312 Sat 12-Dec-15 08:16:58

Wow, okay pretty much everyone hates it, which sucks but is understandable, I'll most likely go with another name now and if I still love it by the time DS arrives, I might only use it as a middle name

DoctorTwo Sat 12-Dec-15 08:19:48

Welcome to The Keiser Report, I'm Max Keiser.

maybebabybee Sat 12-Dec-15 08:23:20

Good God no, that's awful.

I keep thinking names people suggest on these board are jokes but no, they are serious confused

Stasie Sat 12-Dec-15 08:28:16

Kai is alright (the little boy in the snow queen)

meanings are reall important IMO or at least, associations people have with names.

One of mine's named after my first love, one is named after a guy in a movie, and one is a great composer.

Did you have a reason for naming your child this?

Isn't Caius pronounced 'Keys'? Or is that just the college?
