Kobi, a spelling variant of the name Kobe, is quite interesting. The name has a Hebrew origin with a whole lot of background. One can find this background in the Bible or the Old Testament pages. This name was derived from the name Jacob after a series of translations. The first one is the Slavic form of Jakob. This Slavic form is the German of the word Jacob. The last name Kobi comes from the Hebrew aquv or aqab. The meaning of Kobi is 'supplanter'. As you know, the importance of the supplanter is not pleasant, but this is a chance to see how much your baby will defy this path and make his way of life. This baby's name also means 'heel'. Choose this name for your baby, and maybe they'll follow an ambitious and successful path like Kobe Bryant.
