Bronx Mowgli is the latest celebrity baby name to hit the headlines.

He's the son (born just yesterday!) of musicians Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz (of Fall Out Boy).

What do you think of the name? Why?

I'll start...

I'm not enthusiastic about Bronx. I'm not sure why it's there--neither parent is a native NYer. (One is from TX, the other from IL, and their current residence seems to be CA.) So that choice seems random to me.

I kinda like Mowgli, though. Not as a first name--it's not really 'first name' material, imo--but I think it makes a cute middle. Especially if one (or both) parents have a special love of the book/movie.

So my opinion in mixed. Maybe "one thumbs-up, one thumbs-down" sorta thing. smile

What about you?

I think it's awful.

The whole thing.

I mean, I can appreciate that they wanted to be different-whatever. That did not mean for them to take a random city that isn't even used as a "place name" and turn it into a fn... and then to pair it with the jungle book!? seriously? No thank you.

That being said, Mowgli has something about it that I like. Maybe it's just the endearing memories I have of the Jungle Book itself as a child?

Idk, but personally I don't think many celebrababies should be have to endure being named by their parents! lol
