‘Kobe’ Tops List Of Sports-Inspired Baby Names


On January 26, 2020, Bryant and his daughter Gianna were among the nine people on board the helicopter that crashed and left no survivors in Calabasas, California.

Kobe Bryant was a lot of things – husband, father, NBA legend, champion, MVP, business man, and Academy Award winner – to only name a few, which is also the reason why he was so beloved by his fans.

Kobe’s legacy is still very much present today. A lot of current players are still wearing Kobes on their feet and the Lakers legend’s death led to thousands of youngsters bearing his name.

Kobe even tops the list of sports-inspired baby names in the U.S., as 17,071 newborns were named Kobe between 2020 and 2021, per KTLA.
