The whole situation was very exciting because they’ve been waiting to officially adopt the kids for over a year now. After their adoption, Eddie told the boys they could change their name to whatever they wanted. The boys understandably were very excited about all the possibilities. The older boy told Eddie that he wanted to change his name and Eddie was excited for him. But then he revealed the name he wanted to have was “LeBron” after the famous basketball player LeBron James.
Ultimately, Eddie and his wife didn’t let their son name himself LeBron, but they compromised and found him another famous athlete’s name.
