Jacob vs. Jakob

Hi everyone, I usually prefer traditional spellings, but I am liking Jakob (with a k, like Bob Dylan’s son) as opposed to Jacob. My question is this: Is Jakob too "out there" or trendy looking? Does it look made up? Should we just stick with Jacob, or is Jakob also acceptable? Thanks!
Which baby name is best?

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
