Additional information Jacob:

additionalFrom the Hebrew Yaakov, Jacob was borne by the biblical father of twelve sons, who gave their names to the twelve tribes of Israel. Son of Isaac an Rebecca and twin brother of Esae, Jacob was the cunning younger twin who tricked his brother into trading his inheritance for a bowl of soup. He later tricked his blind, dying father into blessing him instead of Esau. Jacob is an especially common Jewish name.

additionalAmerican Meaning: The name Jacob is an American baby name. In American the meaning of the name Jacob is: That supplants, undermines, the heel.

additionalHebrew Meaning: The name Jacob is a Hebrew baby name. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Jacob is: He grasps the heel. Supplanter.

additionalThis name has topped the charts since ’99, and with good reason: It offers both a strong, biblical name (Jacob) and a cool, casual nickname (Jake). Let’s face it: Common as it is, Jacob is a great name. Its popularity, on the other hand, is daunting. It might make you feel better to know that even though it spent about a decade as number one, right now a smaller percentage of baby boys are bearing it, since more names are being used in general. The meaning is also a little iffy: It represents a “heel-grabber” or “supplanter,” stemming from the original Jacob’s days as a fetus -- he was the competitive little infant who emerged from the womb holding his brother Esau’s leg and later conned him out of their dying father’s inheritance and final blessing. On the other side of things though, Jacob did wind up as the patriarch of the 12 tribes of Israel. Once again, you make the call. It was mainly a Jewish name until the Protestant Reformation when Christians (and today, everyone) started using it.

additionalFrom the Latin Iacobus, which was from the Greek Ιακωβος (Iakobos), which was from the Hebrew name יַעֲקֹב (Ya'aqov). In the Old Testament, Jacob (later called Israel) is the son of Isaac and Rebecca and the father of the twelve founders of the twelve tribes of Israel. He was born holding his twin brother Esau's heel, and his name is explained as meaning "holder of the heel" or "supplanter". Other theories claim that it is in fact derived from a hypothetical name like יַעֲקֹבְאֵל (Ya'aqov'el) meaning "may God protect". The English names Jacob and James derive from the same source, with James coming from Latin Iacomus, a later variant of Iacobus. Unlike English, many languages do not have separate spellings for the two names. In England, Jacob was mainly regarded as a Jewish name during the Middle Ages, though the variant James was used among Christians. Jacob came into general use as a Christian name after the Protestant Reformation. A famous bearer was Jacob Grimm (1785-1863), the German linguist and writer who was, with his brother Wilhelm, the author of 'Grimm's Fairy Tales'.
