Meaning:he who supplants
The Hebrew boy’s name Jakob means “he who supplants.” Another variation of this name is Jacob, and it comes from a story in the Old Testament. In the book of Genesis, twins Jacob and Esau were born to Issac and Rebecca. While Esau was being born, Jacob was holding on to his heel, usurping Esau’s birthright as the first-born son. Although Jacob got carried away with his power, we know that your little one will do the right thing when overcoming any obstacles in their way positively.
