Dutch pronunciation is yah-co-BEEN or yah-co-BEE-nuh. [noted -ed]

Very harsh and ugly. Too many severe, clanging consonants and to me, it doesn't sound feminine at all. It's surprising, and quite depressing that some parents would name their daughter such an obvious feminisation of Jacob. And it makes me think of the Jacobite Rebellion and Wars, which lead to the death of many Irish and Scots; the Boyne and Culloden being the first words which come to mind.

This name is also used in Germany and Sweden, but I'm not sure of the popularity in either country.
