About the Jakab surname

Some noble Jakab famileis may be descended from Balam Akab ,called so in Guatemala , who might be called by Welshmen Iago ,also as a translation of "Jakab" to the form traditionally used there ,and as a name referring to him as the king of Gots of Yakutia ,who are the Don-Got tribe of Dolgan ( Don-Wolgan or Deu-Wolgan ) people : Yak-Go' .

His name in the genealogies of Arabia was Taim ,as Taimir ,where some Dolgans live,was named after him . It is also the home of Tawgi people ,likely successors of te town of Taugast founded by Alexander, later called Tabgach . Therefore his name in Peru must have been Ayar Toba Gochi ,brother of Mango Inca .

The clan founded by him got the name Nihaib ,or Nima-Rha-ib in the local language of Guatemala , what also points to Nimet people at river Rha ,now called Volga ,who are the Goths .
