Snoop Was Literally Named After Snoopy
It is little secret that Calvin Broadus has made several name changes over the years. He started out his career as Snoop Doggy Dogg before shortening to Snoop Dogg a few years later before finally altering it a more a regal-sounding Snoop Lion in 2012.
But did you know where Snoop got his famous nickname? He was given his nickname “Snoopy” by his mother because as a child, Snoop was a huge fan of the Charlie Brown television specials.
