Meaning:He who supplants
People named Jacqueline are often called Jackie. But if you name your girl Jacqueline, think about keeping her name, which has abundant French flair, intact. A feminine form of Jacques and Jacob, this name stems from Hebrew roots, meaning "he who supplants." The concept of a successor is fitting, seeing as baby is bound to take the torch of your family name and continue its legacy. Jacqueline has charm and elegance, two traits associated with its most famous namesake, Jacqueline Kennedy, the wife of former President John F. Kennedy. Tori Amos' beautiful tribute to the former first lady celebrates “Jackie’s Strength” and composure during life’s trials. Although not as widespread as it was in the early 1960s, Jacqueline is still très chic today.
