Ahem. Seems Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz just named their baby Bronx Mowgli. Yeah, as in the less-than fashionable New York borough and the protagonist of the “Jungle Book.” How weird is that? Very, says Bruce Lansky, the self-styled Baby Name Guru, although at least the kid’s initials will be BMW. “I think he’ll be called that or Beemer in school. Either would be easier (and more fun) to live with than Bronx Mowgli.”
But why would the rocking Wentzes go with that pairing when there were so many other terrible options out there?
