Other Origin(s):Roman
Meaning:He who supplants
Jacobina is a feminine name of Hebrew origin and the equivalent of the male form Jacob. Both names have the meaning "he who supplants." Ironically, that meaning should be supplanted itself by Jacobina, with the "he" creating an unnecessary exclusivity. Jacobina is also the name of a city in the Bahia region of Brazil. It was founded in 1722 and became known as the "city of gold" due to its legacy of gold mines. Your little one can create their own legacy as an equal opportunity supplanter!
