Hooker said she almost died at birth and was intentionally given her first name by her father.

"Since I was a blessing, [my father] spelled it uniquely. So I am thankful to be here and glad my Dad gave me the name," she explained.

Hooker said she was flattered by the attention being paid to her name. The U.S. indoor volleyball team is currently undefeated.
