Jonah......I am biased though

Jonah is heavily associated with Pacific Islanders where I am. Not that that's necessarily a negative thing. It's just a connotation.

Jacob will just get shortened to Jake.

Jonah. I have a Jonah and I've never met another. I love Jacob but Jacobs and Jakes are everywhere. (And we did get lots of whale themed presents!)

Jacob. Jonah’s a bit of a nickname (in some parts) for someone who likes their sleep too much...”he’s a bit of a Jonah”.

Jonah. I don't really like Jake.

Love the name.

Makes me think of the late, great, Jonah Lomu.
