Origin of the name GIAFFAR.
Etymology of the name GIAFFAR.
Meaning of the baby name GIAFFAR.

  

GIAFFAR (جعفر).  The same as Arabic Gafar (q.v.), meaning "escort," and "guard." (English-Arabic Dictionary, Steingass, 1882).  Also spelled Giafar and Jaffar.  Yonge renders it "splendid," but this must be wrong. 

    The caliph, oppressed, as I before observed to your highness, with this fit of melancholy, despatched Mesrour for his chief vizier, Giaffar Bermukki, who, not unaccustomed to this nocturnal summons, speedily presented himself before the commander of the faithful... (The Pacha of Many Tales, Marryatt, 1896
