Reasons -

Lost is not about to copy a story out of the bible, reference yes, copy no.

There is no reason to believe Jacob and Man in Black are brothers or even related.

The Casting call for his character lists his name as Samuel. Why not stick with that?

And i will have a bet of any amount, with anyone of you that his name isn't Esau.
