Other Origin(s):Danish
Meaning:He who supplants; God is my vow
Ib is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew origin. As the Danish variant of Jakob, it means “he who supplants.” This is in reference to the biblical story, where a character by the same name is believed to have been born grasping the heel of his first-born twin brother Esau. But it may as well be an alternative of Isabel, which means “God is my vow.” Either way, Ib is a short and sweet name for your little one, especially if you put faith and family above all else.
