The name Jacqueline is the feminine form of Jacques, which is common in the English-speaking regions of the world. Some believe the masculine name Jacques is the French version of Jacob, which is taken from the Latin Iacobus that is from the Greek name Iakobus, ultimately derived from the Hebrew name Ya’aqov that means “supplanter” or “holder of the heel”.


While others believe the name Jacques is the French version of James, which is the English form of the Late Latin name Iacomus derived from Iakobos. This is an alternative for the New Testament Greek version of the Hebrew name Ya’aqov. Still, others believe that the name Jacob is from a hypothetical name, such as Ya’aqov’el that means “may God protect”.
