  • No, but I like it with the traditional spelling of Jacob.

  • yeah..but spelling it that way makes me want to separate it into two, 'jay-kob'.

  • Not spelled that way.

  • Jacob is the #1 baby boy name now, so I'd personally avoid it. I'm not a fan of unusual spelling when it's pronounced the same. He will always have people mispelling it.

  • No, especially not with that spelling - and how do you feel about the nickname "Jake" ?

  • The spelling.....all I can look at is the "kob" part and it makes me think of corn on the cob. Corn on the Jay-kob. LOL! I don't think anyone will think you got it from Twilight....I mean, 10 years from now, people will likely not associate that name with that movie.

  • Jacob is a great, strong name. Jaykob is corny. Like corncob.
