After their birth, their names were put up to a popular vote and Kathie Lee and Hoda were the names that won out.
Kathie Lee and Hoda both held their respective goats, and it was clear they were in love with these adorable animals. The goats even had some of the same characteristics as their namesakes. Victoria said Hoda the goat is playful and hilarious, while Kathie Lee the goat is fearless. Kathie Lee exclaimed, “This is better than the Hot 100!” It was certainly hard to part with such cute animals.
