Meaning:Established by God
Yakim is a masculine name of Hebrew origin, meaning "established by God." The Internet offers few mentions of Yakim aside from slight variations of the name, such as the famous actor and stunt worker Yakima Canutt. A World Champion rodeo rider, Yakima and his horse started in silent movies and worked through the talkies era of the 1920s. His work was respected so deeply that Steven Spielberg paid homage to one of his stunts in the 1981 movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. Depending on their belief system, Baby Yakim can embrace the meaning of the name or, perhaps, create a new one in their image.
