Although short and sweet, the name Yaak is an ideal choice for bouncing baby’s who are full of personality and joy. Typically masculine, this moniker is so rare you might consider its meaning and origin to be somewhat of a mystery. It is thought to be of Russian and Hebrew origin and a variant of the name Yakov or Jacob. Meaning “Yahweh may protect,” we have no doubt this title will help keep baby safe and sound as they find their way in the world. Thanks to its link to the name Jacob, Yaak is also thought to mean “he who supplants,” “to follow,” or “to be behind.”
