Jobe is a male first name.
There’s a good chance that a boy named Jobe in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Jobe in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Jobe by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Jobe ranks at #4,060. That means there are 4,059 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Jobe.
If you ever wanted to meet a boy or man named Jobe, you have limited options – because boys with this beautiful name are currently only living in California, Missouri or Texas. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few men and boys called Jobe living in one state or another. (If your name is Jobe and you live outside of California, Missouri and Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Which means – if you put this number in relation to the population of the USA – only one in 500,796 boys and men would turn around if you called out the name Jobe. So if your name is Jobe, it’s very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Jobe already makes you quite special.
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter J is the most popular first letter for boys’ names. 10.1% of all common boys’ names in the US start with this letter. The second most common first letter in boys’ names is A.
With four letters, the name Jobe is shorter than most other given names. In fact, only 5.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly four letters. Just 1.2% of all first names are even shorter, while 93% consist of more than four letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.
That means that if 10.1% of all boys’ names start with a J, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And, by the way, of all the boys’ names that begin with the letter J, the name James is the most common.
If your name is Jobe and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Jobe, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.

These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
