Jaykob -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Jaykob did not fit the trend of the last century. Young parents in the 2000s began to change that a bit.

Although the name never ranked higher than #1,762, 74 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names.
