Despite the 'a' at the end, this name doesn't really strike me as any more feminine than Jacob.

In North America this name would be pronounced Jacob-uh. In my opinion Jacob should not have a girl form.

I like this with both the English and Dutch pronunciations. As an American I lean slightly towards "ju-KOH-buh" but "ya-KOH-buh" is nice too. This name leaves me with the impression of a pretty young girl.
