Comments for JAKOB:

Jakob captures the heart of Jacob, but with this (legitimate) spelling it goes beyond the ordinary & gives an old classic a new start.

This is a great name! I know a very cute boy named Jakob, pronounced Ya-kob.

In Norway we pronounce it Yakk-op. In Norwegian, James Potter is Jakob Potter. It's weird, especially since my dad also has that name. ;)

I named my second son Jakob, it's a very masculine name, and spelled with the k it puts a new modern spin on it. Also Billy Joe Armstrong's (lead singer for Green Day) second son is named Jakob Danger, which we thought was pretty cool.

My younger brother is named Jakob. Most of the time we pronounce it as Jacob, but when he's in trouble my father pronounces it YAH-kob. I think it's a very good name for him.

I personally prefer this spelling to Jacob very much, although it seems more ethnic, like you'd have to pronounce it the German way or something.

I think this is a cute girl name.

I do NOT like this as a girls' name. Take the surnames, but leave the classic male names alone. Would that the boys could borrow girl names as easily.

Like Jacob, I adore this name. Where Jacob is very old (yet still timeless, I believe), Jakob is a more modern twist; especially in the English-speaking world. I think this spelling should be wider used.

It appears childish and "kre8tiv" in spelling. Beware.
