Meaning:he who supplants
Originating from Hebrew, the boy’s name Jacobi means “he who supplants,” and its short form is Jacob. This name is most prevalent in the Book of Genesis, as Jacob is known to be one of the prominent patriarchs of the Israelites. Jacobi is also a variant of the name Jacoby. Other than religious context, this name could suit as a permanent, stylish alternative to famous Jacobs that have inspired you, like character Jacob Black in The Twilight Saga or actor Jacob Tremblay, who played the main protagonists in both Wonder and the animated film Luca.
