    No and I don't see any reason why I would.

    This.  I'm kind of perplexed by the question.

    Thank you all!!! Big help!!

    Yes. Which is weird, but here's why:We're Jewish, and it's very common to name a baby after someone else, but not use the actual name. Sometimes it's done by the meaning of the name so, two names that mean the same thing or by the sound of the first letter of the name. To me, Jake would be a perfectly acceptable way to honor anyone who had a Jname.


    In this same vein, Jacob and James are derived from the same source/name. So if you are worried that FIL will think you are honoring him with Jake...it would be a stretch, but perhaps plausible?
