    We like the name Jacob for one of our twins but just wanted to check it's ok to choose if you're not Jewish?

    Oh Jacob is a nice name Blue! :) You don't have to be Jewish to name him that.

    My son is called Jakob. I love the name!!! You don't have to be Jewish, Jacob is quite a Christian name too.

    My non Jewish cousin is a Jacob.

    It's a pretty mainstream name as far as Hebrew names go.

    I'm sure lots of people who use aren't even aware it's Hebrew.

    Lovely name.
