Jaakan (Anglicized, já-a-kan), meaning "he twists", is a Hebrew name. In the Hebrew Bible, Jaakan is one of the sons of Ezer, the son of Seir the Horite (1 Chronicles 1:42). Jaakan is spelt "Akan" in Genesis 36:27.
There is also a reference to a location Be'eroth Bene-Jaakan, the wells of the children of Jaakan, in Numbers 33:31-32 and Deuteronomy 10:6, a place where the Israelites camped on their Exodus journey from Egypt to the Promised Land.
