Kobe : Meaning, Origin and Popularity

Meaning and originality:

The interesting thing about Kobe is that it comes from a city in Japan which is Famous for its Kobe beef. Located in the South of Japan, Kobe is the fifth biggest city in the country. The history of this city dates back AD 201 and that is why it has one of the oldest shrines in the country. The name of the city was chosen Kobe because the followers of Shinto Shrine (which is located in the city) were called "Kanbe". Experts believe that Kobe includes two elements. One element is "Ko" which means "god" and the other one is "Be" which means "door". This is a very fitting name for a city that is built around a shrine.
