Jaap is an interesting name. I've been looking at names related 'Jacob' or 'Jack' and this Dutch one I find nice. The pronunciation is fun too.

This sounds ugly, and it makes me think of the racial slur that WWII veterans use to describe Japanese people.

I love Dutch names. They're short and fun :)

The name Jaap is not a diminutive, as it does not have the typical -je ending. The real Dutch diminutive would be Jaapje or Japie, the last of which is actually a rare Dutch name. [noted -ed]

In dutch, Jaap is used as a diminutive for Jacob or Jacobus. There is also Joop but it's used as a short form for the name Johannes.
