At a Glance:

First name is pronounced bar-KEY-vee-us.

The story of how he got his first name came after his father, Hugh Mingo, named two of Mingo's older brothers Hugh and Hughtavious. After that, his mother, Barbara Johnson, stepped in and combined the first three letters of her name with a name she liked -- Kevious.

Hails from the same town (West Monroe, La.) where the show “Duck Dynasty” is filmed and lists that as his favorite reality television show. Is friends with the cast and would like to go hunting with them but football and duck season overlap.
