My sons name is Jacoby and we get compliments on it all the time

11/26/2023 05:44:32

Love the son's spelling is Jakoby. We prounounce it Jah-koby. I think putting the K in there was just enough to make people look at it b/4 they try to say it. We know 3 other boys ranging from ages 5-14 w/the'same name. Jacobi, Jacobee & Jacoby =)

Hey, good to find smeoone who agrees with me. GMTA.

My last name is Jacoby (Juh-Kobee) and nobody EVER gets it right. Usually they say "Jacob-EE" or "Jack-O-Bee" But i like it for a first name too.

My grand son was named Jacoby James on 10/09/08 last name'smith.

My second sons was born August 2020 and his name is Jacobi. We changed it up a little bit and yes he is named after the Jacoby Ellsbury from the Red Sox. When'they brought him up for the WOrld Series i knew that was the name i would name my next child. he is a wild child and i love it...

07/19/2023 23:27:04

I love this name. i've only ever met people who pronounce it Jacob-ee. Which I think sounds a million% nicer than jah-coby.

06/23/2023 13:31:58

We just found out that we were pregnant with our second child. Still not sure of the gender, but if the baby is a girl then her name will be Kiaya Jean. Our son is a Jr. so he has his daddy's name (Robert Andrew). This will be our way of naming her after me... my name is Angela Jean. We have always had trouble deciding on a girls name, but when we came up with this, we both fell in love! Now fingers are crossed for a girl!! <3

05/22/2023 23:00:20

I chose this name for my son who was born in October. I wanted a unique name that no one really had. I absolutly LOVE his name and so does everyone else!!

05/13/2023 10:39:14

My husband picked JaKoby for our son. He got it from Jacoby Shaddix, the lead singer of alternative rock group Papa Roach. I think It's a beautiful name. We spelled it with a K hoping it would help people pronounce it right.....but it doesn't! LOL! And I wanted to name him something "different" so this was perfect!!

05/10/2023 07:25:06

My son is named Jacobi (with umlauts over the "o")and I was once chastised by an older lady for naming my son something so ghastly. She'said It'sounded like a disease!! We love it and so does he!

04/25/2023 00:03:26

Yes, People often say it wronglike Rachel and spell it incorrectly like Rachel. The correct way to say my name is Raquel. No, I don't meet a lot of people with the name Raquel. I am glad my name is Raquel because I feel I am special wit hit.

LOVE IT!!! *both thumbs up* The first time I heard it, I absolutely fell in love, and i've loved it ever'since. ^-^ I'm currently pregnant with my first child (hoping for a boy), and if it is, I plan to name him Ja'Cobi (if I can convince my boyfriend to change his mind back.. Lol!). And hopefully the'spelling cuts down on some of the mispronunciation.. :)

12/10/2022 09:14:16

My first born son will be named JaKoby McKinley Lang. Just like many othe's I am a sports fan, but the first time I heard was watching Jacoby Jones play for the Raiders. I switched up the'spelling, but the name is awesome to me.

12/01/2022 02:45:50

My son was born in August 09, his name is Jakoby Raydon, It's a relief to know that he's not the only kid in the world to gets his name pronounced wrong. He also gets Jack-O-bee and Jacob-ee. My little nickname for him is Koby-J. I get very frustrated with people who think they can shorten his name to "Jack", if I wanted him to be called Jack I would've just called him that!

11/24/2022 05:18:16

this name is awesome even'though sometimes they pronounce it wrong but It's something pretty and different

11/17/2022 14:53:54

I love this name! my favourite boys name for first cild. loves it.

11/12/2022 13:31:20

I first heard the name Jacoby in a commercial for the Jacoby & Myers legal network team and I fell in LOVE with it. If I ever have a son that is what his name will be. :) Such a beautiful and uncommon name.

10/27/2022 03:25:02

Hello Does anyone watch baseball❤️ Jacoby Ellsbury from the Boston Red Sox! He pronounces it JUH-KOBE which I think sounds way better than JACOB-EE. JACOB-EE reminds me of a kid in a class where there is two Jacobs and everyone calls him Jacob E. But thats just my opinion. But ya, I do love this name! its so cute and ever'since I heard it I fell in love with it! :)

10/07/2022 08:11:56

This is my son's name, he is almost a year old. For some reason my husband and I saw this name and just said yeah. There was no arguing or anything. It fits him perfectly, I love it cause I think It's uncommon but not a weird name.

03/30/2022 08:40:30

Our oldest sons name is Jakoby! He was born in 2016 and I had never heard it except one of my dads(Jacob) friends used to call him Jacoby...i've loved it ever'since!! My husband wasn't to sure at first but everyone loves it and three people have named their little guys after our son!

11/23/2021 20:42:18
