Kobie is a boy’s name of Greek origin. A contracted form of Jacob, it goes on to mean “supplanter,” “held by the heel,” “heel grabber,” and “leg puller.” This directly ties in with the biblical story of how Jacob tried to come out of his mother’s womb first by pulling at his twin brother’s feet. Suffice it to say, this moniker is made for the competitive-minded and spirited individuals. And if that wasn’t enough, when spelled as Kobe, one of the greatest sportspersons and basketball players comes to mind. Having raised the bar on multiple occasions, this moniker will inspire your little one to go for gold and settle for nothing less.
