i know someone who has a friend called this, but spells the name as 'khyfer'

Kiefer is the german word for "Jawbone".

Kiffer, spelled a little different is a german word for "pothead". Being bilingual in German/English I would find it partly amusing, partly disgusting to this name being given to anybody. Making a variation of this name is kind of silly. Why would anybody want to call their kid something that someone, somewhere will understand as a pothead or a jawbone.

I dunno.

Your call.

I wouldn't.

you wouldn't spell a "pothead" kiefer but kiffer in german.. and it is pornounced differently.
Kiefer is actually a tree in german, jaw bone or if you go further south to bavaria it means "nail biter"..
my friend
