I love this name. However I do not know if any one other than Kiefer Sutherland could pull it off.

Kind of a neat name. Also spelled Keifer and Keefer.

Keefer is how I like to spell this name. I read that Keefer is Celtic/Gaelic meaning handsome or beloved.

Cool name, but reminds me of "heifer", as in, female cow. Not the best association, lol.

Up until now, I seriously didn't know this was a name. (I wasn't aware of Kiefer Sutherland, either.) I used it for one of my characters, unaware that there were actually people with this name. I figured out the name because I was using an online foreign word translator and it said that Kiefer was the German word for "pine". It worked because the character, an animal in an animal story, was a pine marten. I really like this name.

When I was four, I know a girl named Kiefer.

Another ugly celebrity-inspired name. It sounds similar to "heifer", and it also sounds kind of trashy.

"Kiefer" is the German word for "jaw".

Kiefer Sutherland's grandfather was the man who brought universal healthcare to Canada, Tommy Douglas, and thus this name has a more distinguished hint to it than other random surnames in Canada. It's a connection to the man voted as the greatest Canadian of all time.

I personally wouldn't use Kiefer. It's not a bad name, but it means "jaw" in German, a language I happen to study, and it reminds me of the word "kafir" a lot.

Kiefer is German for jaw (jaw bone) or pine tree. It may also be a variation of the German word Küfer for cooper (barrelmaker) as already noted in the meaning.

I wouldn't use this name because it sounds just like "kefir", a fermented milk drink.
