Jacob to Israel

Did you ever notice that God changed Jacob's twice?
And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. (Genesis 32:28)

And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. (Genesis 35:10)
Also, the names Jacob and Israel are used at the same time in 82 verses.
