The name Jasper dates back to ancient times, when its popularity spread through the rippled deserts of Israel and the Persian Kingdom. Meaning "Crown Jewel" or "Keeper of the Treasure," Jasper is a masculine name associated with wealth and riches.
Befitting of such royal origins, the name Jasper works well with breeds such as Bengals and Ragdolls. These cats have majestic fur coats and playful personalities and get along well in active households. Since Jasper also implies a watchful eye, loyal cats with strong affections are also good options.
