"My new baby grandson has just been named Casper and although initially I didn?t like the name I have quickly come to love it.
So far I think opinions have been pretty much divided in our family." Oct. 16, 2019:
"i like it :)
it was a name before casper the friendly ghost you know.." Jun. 8, 2009:
"My son's name is Casper and I love it. Sure, we get the 'friendly ghost' comments but my husband's name is Todd and he grew up being called 'Toad' so I think people will make fun if they are inclined to do regardless if it is an unusual name or not. Easy to spell, easy to remember, sounds great....what's not to like?!" Jul. 9, 2008:
"It's an adorable name and I want to name my son OR daughter Casper." Mar. 11, 2007:
"My name is Casper and being female most people think it is a nick name. I do get plenty of friendly ghost remarks, and over the phone most people think I'm saying "Catherine" instead of Casper. But I love that it's very uncommon, unexpected and memorable. I had a "school name" in kindergarten through 9th grade so I don't know if my real name would have brought on much teasing or not. As an adult I get complimented quite frequently, and it's nice to be different." Sep. 14, 2006:
"Love the name, it is the name of our new Baby and everyone we know and meet love the name. The mother in law did not at the beginning but now loves it as well.
It is a very special name for a very special baby! World Leader!!" Jan. 24, 2006:
