Jacob is one with widespread appeal. It must be, if it’s overtaken the number one spot for 13 years running. What is it that we love about Jacob so much?
- We love his ancient, Judeo-Christian, venerable history.
- We love his homespun quality.
- We love his snappy, friendly nickname.
- We love his J.
