A variation of the Hebrew name Jacob, meaning “supplanter.” Only you might think of your little Jakob as an UN-planter when he “thoughtfully” picks you a bouquet … of every single flower in your flower bed.
Famous people named Jakob:
Singer Jakob Dylan; son of singer Billie Joe Armstrong, Jakob Danger Armstrong; son of actors Tamsin Greig and Richard Leaf, Jakob Zebedee Leaf.
There is a 1999 film called Jakob the Liar starring Robin Williams. It's a fantastic movie, despite the title.
