"My nephew's name is Duke and he's a frickin beast. He's in 3rd grade and is taller and stronger than my 6th grade son. What a great name for a football player who wrecks kids on the field." Oct. 31, 2020:
"I named my son, Duke. It's a unique, strong, masculine name that everyone can spell. So far he's only ever met one other person with the name Duke, so it's not common, which was part of the point of giving him the name. It's also memorable. No one forgets his name." Aug. 4, 2017:
