Napier is a Scottish surname found in Scotland, Australia and the USA. I am the only person in the world that I know of that has it as a first name, although several people use it as a middle name, usually because it was a maternal family name. I was teased with the nickname corruption "nappy" as a child, but loved the uniqueness of the name as I grew older. The origin predates "napery" as indicated above and is actually Scottish for "na' meaning "no' and "pier" meaning "peer,' meaning "no peer" or "no equal."
