Last year 465 baby boys were given the first name of Kobe in the United States. That’s well down from the peak of 1,552 back in 2001, according to the Social Security Administration’s baby name database.
Paul George didn’t name a baby Kobe, but the Southern California native did just get a cute new pit bull puppy, and guess what his name is? Here is George’s adorable child and a cute puppy playing together, in a video that should break the internet with cuteness.
I’m sure Kobe is honored.
