Baby name story: Elloebee

Elloebee, named for the Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" (L.O.B)

First there was 12th Mann, and now there’s Elloebee.

A baby girl born on September 20 was given the Seahawks-inspired name Elloebee — a spelled-out version of the acronym L.O.B., which stands for “Legion of Boom.”

Here’s how her father, Christopher, explained it on Facebook (via KING 5): “We are big Seahawks fans and when we were thinking of names for our daughter, we wanted something that stood for strength and resilience. We named her Elloebee, after the LOB!”

L.O.B. refers to anyone who has played defensive back for Seattle Seahawks since 2012, which is when the term “Legion of Boom” was coined.

  1. Sports, football especially, continues for better or worse, to have pervasive influence in American society. It remains a male-dominated sport so little chance this young girl will participate in her father’s chosen sport for her. As a side note – Cincinnati Bengals cleaned Seattle Seahawks clocks yesterday. Just saying’.
