"LOVE IT!!! *both thumbs up* The first time I heard it, I absolutely fell in love, and I've loved it ever since. ^-^ I'm currently pregnant with my first child (hoping for a boy), and if it is, I plan to name him Ja'Cobi (if I can convince my boyfriend to change his mind back.. Lol!). And hopefully the spelling cuts down on some of the mispronunciation.. :)" Dec. 3, 2011:

"We're pregnant with a little boy and have always loved this name, however we're going with the spelling 'Jakobi' so it can't be mispronounced." Nov. 10, 2011:
"My husband picked JaKoby for our son. He got it from Jacoby Shaddix, the lead singer of alternative rock group Papa Roach. I think it's a beautiful name. We spelled it with a K hoping it would help people pronounce it right.....but it doesn't! LOL! And I wanted to name him something "different" so this was perfect!!" Jul. 14, 2011:
"I haven't ever heard the name much but my fiance decided on it &i loved the name since. Im pregnant & thats why im naming my baby BOY.
Jacoby John. The only thing that fusterates me is people are always saying the wrong name when they read his name. It Jacboy [Juh-Kobe-ie]<3" Feb. 16, 2011:

"my son, 5mnths is jakobii kaii. i knew that somewhere out there someone would have the name so i modified the spelling! its an awesme name" Nov. 19, 2009:
"My son was born in August 09, his name is Jakoby Raydon, it's a relief to know that he's not the only kid in the world to gets his name pronounced wrong. He also gets Jack-O-bee and Jacob-ee. My little nickname for him is Koby-J. I get very frustrated with people who think they can shorten his name to "Jack", if I wanted him to be called Jack I would've just called him that!" Oct. 20, 2009:
"I absolutely love this name. My husband and I are huge red sox fans (like, really really die-hard fans). We're expecting a boy this fall, and we've finally decided on jacoby, after jacoby ellsbury :) i must say, i love it. and so does my mom, so it must be good!" Jun. 8, 2009:
"Hello? Does anyone watch baseball? Jacoby Ellsbury from the Boston Red Sox! He pronounces it JUH-KOBE which I think sounds way better than JACOB-EE. JACOB-EE reminds me of a kid in a class where there is two Jacobs and everyone calls him Jacob E. But thats just my opinion. But ya, I do love this name! its so cute and ever since I heard it I fell in love with it! :)" Mar. 23, 2009:
"I chose this name for my son who was born in October. I wanted a unique name that no one really had. I absolutly LOVE his name and so does everyone else!!" Jan. 12, 2009:
"Love the name...my son's spelling is Jakoby. We prounounce it Jah-koby. I think putting the K in there was just enough to make people look at it b/4 they try to say it. We know 3 other boys ranging from ages 5-14 w/the same name. Jacobi, Jacobee & Jacoby =)" Jan. 2, 2009:
"I love this name and am seriously considering it for my baby boy due in a few weeks, if I can only convince my husband.. :)" Dec. 31, 2008:

"My sons name is Jacoby and we get compliments on it all the time" Dec. 11, 2008:
"My best friend is naming her son Jacoby! I LOVE it!" Nov. 6, 2007:
"Yes, people often mispronounce this name as Jacob-E or Jack-O-bee instead of the way it is supposed to be pronounced Juh-Kobbe. I have only met one other person with the same name. I think it's great to have a name that not very many other people have." Sep. 11, 2007:
