Last night Ashlee Simpson and husband Pete Wentz welcomed a baby boy into their lives, and in turn, all of our lives. You didn't think these two would give this little guy a normal name, did you? Unlike many celeb couples who allow their kid a shot with a normal middle name, this one is just screwed no matter what way you look at it: Bronx Mowgli Wentz.Words fail. The proud pop explained the decision, with US noting that "his goal was to make sure his kid would have a moniker that would work as either 'a rock star or a senator.'" While Brooklyn Beckham hasn't seemed to tarnish his namesake borough yet, the Bronx may want to consider changing its name as a precautionary measure. And Staten Island better watch out, too—your name just rolls off the tongue in conjunction with "Spears," don'tchyathink?
