"SpongeBoy", but that name was already copyrighted, so there came "SpongeBob". In fact, the script writer sneaked in "SpongeBoy" without getting sued, which was Mr. Krab's line from the episode "Squeaky Boots", which was, "SpongeBoy-me-Bob!"

Why is SpongeBob a sponge?

Spongebob was originally actually going to be called Spongeboy. However they couldn't go ahead with the name because it was already copyrighted by a company that makes mops, as one of their mops are called "Spongeboy". The creators still felt that the name had to have "sponge" in it, so people didn't mistake him for cheese. So the creators simply changed the last letter of his name. From Boy to Bob. It is not known whether his name is actually "Bob" or not, the creators just thought it sounded catchy (plus, sponge naturally bobs in water).
