Mainly a Shi’a name, therefore it's also used in Iran (also written as "جعفر" in Persian). [noted -ed]

I find it hard to take this name seriously ever since I saw Disney's Aladdin. Though it sounds like it could be a cool name for a boss or someone in an authoritative position.

It was also the name of the great-grandson of Hussain (grandson of Prophet Mohammedand and 2nd Imam). Ja'far Al-Sadiq is known as the 6th Imam among Shi'ite Muslims.

A silly reference, probably, but Jafar was the name of the usurping advisor to the Sultan in Disney's movie "Aladdin".
