Kieper Name Meaning
from the medieval personal name Kiepert, an altered form of Gebhardt. It has also been suggested that it is from an agent derivative of Low German Kiep(e), which denotes a basket designed to be carried slung across the back, hence an occupational name for a basket maker or peddler.
