What's the EB verdict on this name?
I'm due in 6 weeks and I have no names on my list, I think I like Jasper.
Naming people is so hard!!!

I really like it, it was on our list but had to veto it when my close friend named her dog Jasper  glare.gif

Is it gaining popularity from Twilight?

I've always liked Jasper and still do even with the contemporary take-up in Oz.  It's very cool.

The coffee company was named for the owner's son.  He went to school with my daughter.

Ive never seen Twilight so I didn't know there was a Jasper on there.  And i'm not sure why it matters what the nickname will be? Aussie are so weird about nicknames! (yes i'm Aussie so I can say that).

DP also likes it, but in his country (Norway) he would spell it Jesper (Danish I think), so if we go with it we will need to argue about spelling original.gif

I think it's a pretty cool name, but then again I could be biased.  cool.gif

I have long loved the name Jasper.

It has a little back story for me, when I was a child our family would drive down South NSW and go past a creek called Jasper's Brush Creek and a wine region called Jasper's brush. The name always stuck with me.

Also Jasper is a red stone, partner has red hair and as you can see in my sig, so does our boy.

We ended up with a Jasper William, he was nearly a Jasper Rowan or a Rowan Jasper, I guess the name Rowan seemed safer at the time. But we haven't had anyone really make a big deal about it. It must be be coming back in as a woman in my antenatal was naming her son the same thing.

His NN is Jaspie or affectionately Jaspiebear and he also gets Jasp/Jas from one of my gf's.

Haha yes I AM obsessed with nn!! My friends called their des jack thinking no one would nn him and he instantly became Jacko (but I didn't start it I promise!). That said Jaspie is sooo gorgeous and camille is gorgeous as a big sis to Jasper...

I fell in love with the name years ago when my friend had a boyfriend Jasper. He was Ducth so pron Yasper. As luck would have it I married a Duchie and got to use the name and pronunciation. It was pretty easily accepted in Oz, though we have never lived in Oz full time.
He gets the nn Yapper (as sid by other kids when we was younger) and yas.
All the best for you delivery.

I like it.

I like nature names for boys. The ones on the traditional side of things that aren't all tie-dyed, but have nature-based meanings. Jasper, Heath, Rowan, Reed, Corbin.

The coffee thing I didn't know but wouldn't bother me. Maxwell is coffee to me and still a perfectly okay name to use.

You might have all convinced me, so far Jasper is the winner (not that I had many others in the running).  I feel good about it original.gif

I've been meaning to post this for a while. I like Jasper and it is growing on me more and more if bub is a boy. DH is not so keen but wouldn't say no. I would just need to convince myself I love it though.... I do love the nn Jas though wub.gif

This thread is definitely selling the name to me original.gif It's the only boys name I really like at the moment!

Good luck deciding, it's very tough!
