Yachov is a Bulgarian and Russian form of Jacob, whose roots grow deep through several languages. Derived from the Latin Iacobus and Greek Iákōbos, Yachov’s origins lie in the Hebrew Yaʿakov. Jacob, the father of the Israelites, famously bore this name. Holding the meanings “supplanter,” “heel-grabber,” and “to follow or be behind,” this ancient name describes Jacob’s birth when he held the heel of his twin brother Esau. Whether expecting twins or honoring your faith or ancestry, Yachov lends a handsome, slightly modernized form of a classic biblical title.
