Jake is my sons name, people always presume that he is named Jacob. Or he gets Jack. We loved the name for it is a strong, easy name that we thought would not get teased with a simple name. I have not heard of many people of adult age called jake, but know 2 other boys named Jake. We say Jakes name like Jay-k. We are very glad we named him Jake and would reccomend this as a good choice.

02/03/2023 06:26:52
