Yakob is an Armenian, Aramaic, and Assyrian name with Hebrew, Latin, and Greek origins, derived from Iacobus, meaning “he who supplants.” A form of Jacob, Yakob is a striking variation of a well-known title whose roots weave through many languages and cultures. Jacob is a central biblical figure across the Abrahamic religions, revered as the patriarch of the Israelites. Jacob also means “heel-grabber” in reference to his birth, where he was holding his twin brother Esau’s heel. Yakob opens space for baby to explore and honor the Abrahamic faiths while having the freedom to forge their one-of-a-kind identity.
