Origin and Meaning

Fictional name invented by Clive Staples ("Jack") Lewis for one of the main characters (a prince, and later king) in The Chronicles of Narnia, a series of seven fantasy novels for children

The name is probably based on the name of the Caspian Sea, the great saltwater lake between Russia and Iran, which takes its name from the people known to the Romans as the Caspii, who lived on its shores and who originated from a region of the Caucasus. Their name may mean 'white', but an association with the biblical name Cush (Ethiopian word meaning 'dark-faced, swarthy') is also possible [1]
