User comments for Yaqub

Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
This name is not only a cognate of Jacob, but also a cognate of James. The two names are also derived both from Yaacov; around the world, in the most part of languages, exists only one version for the two names, like Yaqob in Arabic that it's used for the patriarch Jacob and for the two apostles named James.

The name is spelled Yaqoob not Yaqub. I guess that could be a different way to spell it. But in the bible it's Yaqoob.

This name is Arabic, which uses a different alphabet than the Roman Alphabet. Therefore it can be spelled a number of different ways and has no set Latin spelling.
