"My husband and I went back and forth over the spelling of our son's name we knew that it was going to be Jacob or Jakob but we couldn't make up our minds until his cousin made it up for us. She painted a bunch of stuff to hang in the nursery and wrote JAKOB on all of them. Decision made. I like it because he is 13 now and he goes to school with many Jacobs but he's the only Jakob."

"I named my son this just after giving birth, I had thought I was having a girl and had no names picked for a boy, I had always known that if I did have a boy the middle name would be David after my deceased father. And Jakob David sounded nice. I spell his with a K to honor his older sister named Kendal." May. 6, 2011:
