More like a Greek or Turkish name, since those are the languages of Cyprus.

Admiral Sir Cyprian Bridge (1839-1924), who headed British Naval Intelligence. He was named after his uncle Major Cyprian Bridge (1807-85), after whom Cyprian Bridge Island in the Pacific was named.
Great name, imho.

I think Cyprian would be cute for a girl, especially paired with a girly middle name like Julia. But the chances of me making that happen aren’t 100%. I would name her Cypria. I prefer Cyprian as a usual boy’s name, but for a girl, it would be unique.

I knew a girl in high school with this name--I've always felt that, though it's a fairly masculine name, anyone of any gender could use it.

The name for the island of Cyprus comes from Greek "Kypros", meaning "land of cypress trees".

While this is the name of a saint from the 3rd century, it's also a term for a prostitute, based on the people of Cyprus who would have orgies in worship of Aphrodite.

Thanks for saying. Have to say, though, I still love this name.
