Kaiser is pronounced "Ky-zer" with Ky as in Kyle.

We do not have "Kaiser" (meaning "emperor") as a first name here in Germany, only as a last name. The German version of "Caesar" would be "Cäsar" and it is pronounced like "TSAY-zar".

Kaiser is not the German form of the name Caesar, it is the German word for "emperor". It is not used as a first name in Germany, only as a surname. [noted -ed]

I've went to school with a boy named Kaiser since the sixth grade. I think it's a cool name.

When people think of the name Kaiser they think of the health insurance called Kaiser Permente.

I don't like it, the first thing it makes me think of is a Kaiser roll.

I hate this name. It makes me think of that monster Wilhelm II.

Kaiser roll. Mmmmm.

Could make an interesting name, and it's not as pompous as Caesar.

The confusion for this name comes from the fact that the German word for Emperor, "Kaiser," is literally the Germanic spelling for the "Caesar," which in Latin had a hard 'C' sound, and an 'AY' sound for dipthong AE (Æ).

And yes, no one in Germany is named this. It would be similar to naming your son "emperor" in an English-speaking country.

Keyser Söze (pronounced Like 'Kaiser') is a fictional character in the 1995 movie 'The Usual Suspects'. In 2003 the American Film Institute named him the 48th greatest movie villain.

This is like naming your son "king". (which, to my utter surprise, people do) I guess it could be argued that Caesar is of similar meaning but used as a full name... But Kaiser just sounds like a dog name. I quite like it for a dog. But if a word isn't used as a name in the country it's derived from, I wouldn't use it. It's just uncultured and tacky.

This is my son's middle name. I think it's a strong masculine name. We don't call him by his middle name but by his first, Lucian. My family at first were put off by my child's first and middle name but now they like it. When I named him, I didn't think of Kaiser Permanente or the roll. People usually don't say anything regarding that to my child's name.
