Meaning:He who supplants; At the heel
The boy's name Jakobe is a modern Americanized spelling of the Hebrew names Jacob and Jacoby, meaning "he who supplants" and "at the heel." In the Hebrew Bible, Jacob first appears as the twin brother to Esau and the son of Isaac and Rebekah. As the story goes, little Jacob was determined to be the firstborn and, while making his arrival, held on to his twin's heel. While we may admire his determination, your virtuous little one will surely learn from Jacob's wrongs and strive to do the right thing.
