The name is alright, but kinda plain and boring.

Name of the gorgeous actor Jake Gyllenhaal! Can also be a pet form of Jacob.
-- emeraldstar  7/11/2006
I like this name by itself, without Jacob. I've met a couple of Jacobs and, to put it mildly, they've ruined the name for me.

I adore the name Jake, my second son would be Jake. He would be Jake Alfie. I love it so much, so simple and natural.

My brother's name is Jacob, but goes by Jake. My mom was influenced by the John Wayne movie, Big Jake.

Also Jake Chambers is a leading character in the Dark Tower series by Stephen King.

My brother is named Jacob but always goes by Jake. I like the name a lot. It really suits him. He's fun and outgoing and always likeable (unless he's being annoying - but he's my brother, what can I say?) I really like the name though. It's cool.

Cute name. I like it better than Jacob. But I can't see it being a good name when he's say, a grandpa.

The only Jake I know used it as a short form of James.

I think this should be listed as a nickname for Jacob, also---being as Jacob's the most popular name being given these days and Jake is the usual nickname. [noted -ed]

My friend's name is Jake. I think it's a cute name, and it suits him well.

There's a song called "Feed Jake", I believe. It's about this guy praying to God that if he should die before he wakes, would God have someone feed his dog, Jake.

My brother's name is Jacob aka Jake! My mom really loves the name Jacob. My dad didn't like Jacob, so my mom said they can call him Jake as a nickname after the John Wayne move, Big Jake!

I love the name Jake for a girl.

In "Young Americans", the WB summer premiere of 2000, one of the lead characters was a girl called Jake, short for Jacqueline - played by Katherine Moennig. She attended an all-boy's school trying to get attention from her mother.

Jake Shears, born Jason Sellards is the lead singer of the Scissor Sisters alongside Ana Matronic. Jake is favourited among the likes of Kylie Minogue and Elton John & his influences include Roxy Music, David Bowie & Elton John. Jake is well known for his flamboyancy on stage, his elaborate, sparkly costumes, and his hugely falsetto voice.

I don't like this name as a shortened form of Jacob. I much prefer it as a real name.

My son's name is Jake I hate the name Jacob, and absolutely love the name Jake. It is such an attractive name. I think it all started with "Jake Ryan" in the movie Sixteen Candles. I thought he was so hot and the name stuck with me.
-- rivhern  7/27/2008
I really like this name. It has a boyish charm, yet; it can by strong and manly too. I don't like the name Jacob (maybe because of the association with Jacob Marley in Ebeneezer Scrooge's Christmas Carol) and I would never name a girl Jake.
-- KayeKiLa  8/13/2008
Jake is such a boring, flavorless name. There are like 50000 Jakes at my school.

Jake has quickly been gaining popularity in the US. Why I don't know. Jack is better. Jake makes me think of a jock or bartender.
-- anonymous111  2/4/2010
The sound of this name is very abrupt. I dislike Jake.
-- Athena Nike  4/4/2010
This name is overused. I know, like four+ Jakes. Not that it's a bad name; it's just too common for me.

My stepbrother has this name. I think it's pretty nice.
-- Chrila96  10/9/2010
This is the name of the main protagonist in the 2009 movie Avatar, Jake Sully.
-- Zanizaila  10/21/2010
Since I see how many people like this name, I won't be too harsh. But I honestly dislike this name. (I know at least six Jakes). Very overused. I don't like how it sounds, in other words. It gives me the image of an obnoxious football player (though I am sure there are plenty of kindhearted Jakes out there, don't get me wrong). But I respect the opinion of those who like it.

I love Jake, but it will always be diminutive for me. It'll always be a nickname for me, rather than a real name.

Jacob Benjamin "Jake" Gyllenhaal is an American actor.
-- Anonymous User  1/8/2012
Though names like this are normally not my style, Jake is one of my favorite boys names. Which is strange since I don't even really like Jacob. I picture Jake as either an adorable, brown haired little boy who is very active and kinda cheeky, or a 20-30 year old guy who is really laid back. Definitely a great name, I'd prefer to meet ten million Jakes over another that rhymes with Aiden.

I love the name Jake! It's cute and simple and has an obvious masculine sound to it. ^_^ I think it's VERY underappreciated these days! :(

Jake Pitts is only the greatest guitarist on EARTH. He's the lead guitarist of Black Veil Brides. He's a GOD too.

My three year old son is named Jake and we have never met another little Jake since he was born. Apparently it is quite rare, it has never broken the top 40 in the U.S. and has become more rare since it's peak in the late 90s. It has not been in the top 100 boy names in the U.S. since 2013. We hope it continues to be an unpopular name.

I like this name because it is simple and quite a kind-sounding name.
-- helloadele  12/19/2015
Jack and Jake are childish nicknames in my opinion, and don't work as full names for me. I prefer the longer versions of the name rather than the shortened one because Jake is just a kiddish name just like Billy or Joey.
