Names of the Week – Lorelei & Casper


This week our names are Lorelei & Casper

Lorelei – is a German name, meaning “alluring temptress” or “luring rock”. Legend has it that the Lorelei was a beautiful maiden living in the rocks by the sea.  Her beautiful voice lured sailors to their death.  Perhaps not the best meaning, but Lorelai (yep, different spelling) is also the name of the lovable characters from The Gilmore Girls.


Casper – may possibly be a Dutch name meaning “treasurer”, a variation of the Persian name Jasper. The alternative spelling, Caspar is also well loved.  Many people associate this name with the lovable character, Casper the Friendly Ghost.
