Due with a little boy and my husband and I have decided on Caspar/Casper but can't decide how to spell it. Which spelling do you prefer?

Caspar, I think.

Lovely name, and I've only ever heard complimentary comments about it (friend has a 3yr old Caspar, spelled with an a).

Best of luck with his delivery! May it be safe and speedy flowers

I prefer Caspar. It looks 'right' to me. (No idea if it is!)

Caspar (Casper is the ghost).

I prefer Caspar but both spellings are 'right'

Caspar would be my preference (I like the way it looks), but both spellings are legitimate and O wouldn't bat an eyelid either way.
It's a really lovely name OP - good choice.

Caspar for me too

Love the name!

Caspar seems more traditional IMO. It's what we're using for our next DC if it's a boy!!

Casper for me

Casper seems to be the more popular spelling at the moment. It's #281 in the rankings for 2015, whereas Caspar doesn't chart.

Definitely Caspar - Casper is too ghosty ;-)

I have friends with a Casper- it looks wrong/is wrong.

My favourite name, I've always loved it but wasn't allowed it. It's getting really popular now though!

Caspar does chart. It was ranked #702 for boys in 2015, with 47 uses.

Gorgeous name OP, my daughter would have been one if she was a boy. I prefer Caspar but as it's the less common spelling I'd say it's more likely to be misspelt occasionally. If that would annoy you, go with Casper. Both are lovely smile

I like Caspar better. It would have been DD's name if she'd been a boy.
