This surname is also found in France (Nord, Alsace, and Lorraine). As a Jewish surname it has absorbed various other Jewish patronymics from the same personal name, as for example Jacobowitz , and in North America also cognates from other languages, for example Slovenian Jakopič (patronymic from an old variant of the personal name Jakob ).
