Other Origin(s):Slavic
Meaning:He who supplants
With this biblical name, you can easily share your faith with your little one. Jakov, a boy's name with Hebrew roots, is a variation of Jacob and means "he who supplants." In the Book of Genesis, in both the Christian Old Testament and Torah, Jacob is seen as the father of all Israelites, making it a central name in both religions. Jakov is a Serbian and Croatian variation of the name, so it's a clever way of honoring some Balkan heritage while you introduce baby to your faith.
