Gender: M Meaning of Kaiser: "Emperor" Origin of Kaiser: German

Kaiser, as in roll and Wilhelm, is not often heard as a baby name, but Teen Mom Jenelle Evans may change all that -- she named her second son Kaiser, following brother Jace which started a trend for his name. It fits the two-syllable -er ending style that's all the rage, and it lends itself to the short form Kai. But we hope this Germanic version of what is essentially a title rather than a name does not catch on (a hope we are sure is futile).
