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/Jacob, the Hebrew name means "he who supplants," Jacqueline has charm and elegance, two traits associated with its most famous namesake, Jacqueline Kennedy, the wife of former President John F. Kennedy. Although not as fashionable as it was in the early 1960s, it’s still très chic today.
