    Name Meaning

    Dutch, Flemish, German, English, and Jewish: patronymic from the personal name Jacob , ‘Jacob's (son)’, with genitival (or, as an English name, post-medieval excrescent) -s. 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 ).
