Coby: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Coby

Coby

Pronunciation: KOH-bee (key)

Kobe Bryant's catchy name and flashy basketball moves inspired thousands of little namesakes when he was winning championships with the Lakers. For what it's worth, Bryant's parents reportedly chose the name from a dinner menu: Kobe is a top-quality Japanese beef. The spelling Coby is occasionally heard as a nickname for Jacob.
