"I love this name. OUr 5 year old son is called Jobey and he thinks he has the coolest name in the world!" Apr. 9, 2010:
"I can understand why people wouldn't like this name - poor Job in the Bible just couldn't catch a break, and the name means "persecuted." But I like it. It's got a familiar sound (like "Joe") but the B on the end makes it unique. I also think the story of Job is one of the most fascinating in the Bible. The chart cracks me up, though...1891 must have been a big year for Job. Six whole people got the name!" Apr. 9, 2009:
