That Poor Baby from the American Jungle

Why do they do this?!

Ashlee Simpson gave birth to a son recently. They named it

Bronx Mowgli Wentz

I don't know why people want to saddle their children with oddball names like this. Do they think it's cute?

The Bronx, of course, is a part of New York City that is famous for its accent, its cheer, and its Son of Sam murders. Mowgli is the main human character in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. This kid is destined for an identity crisis.

Throw Mowgli and the Bronx together, and what do you get? Apparently they thought that "Tarzan Wentz" and "Crocodile Dundee Wentz" were just too weird. Plus, they wouldn't give the added "bonus" of having the initials BMW.

Makes you wonder what they would have named a girl, though. Yonkers Offred Wentz, perhaps?
