My maternal grandma's father's grandma. (Great - great great grandma) had this name and is from Prussia. I did some research and it means supplanter, held by heel.

It can be a feminine form of Jacob. Jake can be a nickname/short form for Jacob and Jacobine.

I prefer the male version of the name, Jacob (I'm one of them). For a girl it is too strong and masculine in my opinion. The best female form is Jamesina.

I like the name when it is pronounced with a J in the front. I would love to name my daughter this and call her Coby or Cobi.

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

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.
