I'm adopted. My 'adopted' mother & father gave me the name - Jacobina. My dad nicknamed me Cobi. I should mention my adoptive mom is German/French & my dad is American. I'm a German citizen. I can speak fluent German, French & English/American. Unfortunately, most people mispronounce my full name. The proper pronunciation is Yah-Co-Bee-Nah via the German language.
I go by Cobi, it fits my personality & is much easier for people to pronounce!

Iakovina is a Greek form of this.

Pretty sure most people who think the name is ugly are thinking it's pronounced jay-kob, ee-na or jay-kob-eye-na... not the actual pronunciation, yah-ko-BEE-na. It's a pretty name, and it's not JUST a random feminization. It's a Hebrew name and has also been widely used around Scotland since the 17th century.

Wow, not every name needs to have a feminine form. Especially this one.

The Dutch pronunciation for Jacobina is: yah-ko-BEE-nah. [noted -ed]

This name just looks and sounds very unflattering for a girl. I love the name Jacob for a boy, but why try to make a perfectly good boys name feminine?

I'm sorry, but this name is, in my opinion, both completely ugly and totally over the top and ridiculous. Hideous.

Refined, elegant and charming.

I'm sorry but I disagree, Jacobina is an awful name. I would never name a child by this name.
