Iacopo is an Italian alternative to Jacob. With roots in Ancient Greek and Hebrew, it means “he who supplants” or “to follow.” As per a story in the Hebrew Bible, Jacob pulls at his twin brother’s heel in order to emerge first from his mother’s womb. Although the attempt was in vain, he does win her heart, becoming the favorite. If your little one is the apple of your eye and you swear to do anything for their happiness, there isn’t a more apt name than Iacopo.
