I like it but it will get pronouced wrongly.

Rafferty nn Rafe is similar.

DontSHOUTTTTTT Tue 09-Apr-13 20:57:42

I don't like it as it sounds like a kiddy nickname for someone called Jacob

thegreylady Tue 09-Apr-13 20:30:56

love the name Jacoby

MamaBlue4 Tue 09-Apr-13 15:56:59

Jacoby is the name of one of my favourite band's lead singer. He's called Jacoby Shaddix and he it's pronounced Ja-co-bi smile

Awesome name.

It's pronounced with the initial Ya (not J) sound in Russian though.

It means "allegedly" in Russian: I wouldn't.

I love the name! but i don't know why i wouldn't name a child it.. I really dont have a clue grin I think this is my future dog name for those resons! But go for itthanks

Frikadellen Mon 08-Apr-13 17:06:29

williaminajetfighter Mon 08-Apr-13 16:59:12

oh kitten, you're right....

KittenOfDoom Mon 08-Apr-13 12:13:25

No, her name is Jacoba. It's the Dutch equivalent of Jacqueline et al.

williaminajetfighter Mon 08-Apr-13 08:49:44

It's the name of actress Coby Smulders. Obviously she shortens it. I understand its a girls name.

mathanxiety Mon 08-Apr-13 02:46:29

I like it a lot. It's an older version of Jacob.

WildThong Sun 07-Apr-13 21:47:14

Not for me. Bit pretentious, sorry. And the child will spend the rest of his life spelling it out and correcting people who assume it's Jacob.

I've just been saying Isobel, Isabelle over and over agin to myself and I just can't hear the difference!
Not too keen on Jacoby though definitely heard worse.

Coffee1Sugar Sun 07-Apr-13 20:27:51

Isobel, Isabel, Isabelle - all the same to me hmm

sandberry Sun 07-Apr-13 18:35:15

Proper old name, the original way James was rendered in the Bible but I think you will get a lot of mispronunciations

Rhubarbgarden Sun 07-Apr-13 07:48:42

I've heard worse. But it wouldn't be my choice.

Whatalotofpiffle Sun 07-Apr-13 07:32:39

I like it but be prepared for haters and mis pronouncers.

thermalsinapril Sat 06-Apr-13 23:10:47

What Kitten said.

KittenOfDoom Sat 06-Apr-13 23:08:35

I actually can't hear any difference between Isobel and Isabel. I have never heard anyone pronounce either version in any other way than Iz-uh-bel. (The middle bit being the sound usually represented by an upside-down e)

As for Jacoby, I would say it like the first three syllables of Jacobean. I do see it as a surname though.

olivertheoctopus Sat 06-Apr-13 22:26:42

Not a fan. But then I don't like the name Jacob either.

cheekbyjowl Sat 06-Apr-13 22:22:54

Go for it. I think it has a nice sound to it

CandlestickOlder Sat 06-Apr-13 22:21:43

I really can't believe people would struggle to pronounce jacoby
