Ashlee Simpson Gives Birth to Baby Bronx!

Ninety percent of lilsugar readers were correct when they predicted that Ashlee Simpson would give birth before Naomi Watts. The singer and her hubby Pete Wentz became the parents of a bouncing baby boy tonight. Congratulations to the rockin' family!

Really and truly, horrifically bad name. I'm sure they thought they were really clever using Mowgli, and I'd really like to know what their deep connection to the Bronx is.

yes it is pronunced Mow-glee. and the name sounds all wrong together... way to harsh. did they not sound it out to themselves. ihope the kid legally changes it as he gets older..

Oh, I get it.. BMW! Funny...until they get the numerous phone calls from his school saying that he got beat up again!

That's how I pronounce it too Greggie. I think Mowglu could be cute actually if it fit with the rest of the name and of course only as a middle name. I don't like Bronx but it could have worked better with a different middle and last name.

If I remember correctly from the movie, it's mow as is mow the lawn, and glee. Mo-glee.

Zuma is an actual name though and Nesta for Bob, but Bronx is a location (and it's not even cute like Brooklyn). And the combination of letters in Mowgli is just horrendous (I'm hoping the pronounciation is better). They commpletely dropped the ball on this.

Jungle Book wasn't one of my favorite movies so could someone be so kind and help me with the pronounciation.

I still think Zuma's worse than Bronx, but as far as full names go with Lunesta or whatever and Mowgli, they may tie.

Maybe they were hoping to get Bronx and Brooklyn together for a playdate - partners in burroughs, partners in play?

I had to do a double take on middle name because I originally thought it said "Mogwai," as in Gizmo from Gremlins. Not that Mowgli is much better. What is with celebrities naming their kids after locations? Maybe they should give their baby a name meant for.. I dunno.. PEOPLE?

I think Mowgli is a great middle name and Bronx isn't the worst, there are worse city/country names people name their children, like brooklyn (yuk) and Asia (why?) . I love their name but I wouldn't personally name my kid that. I think it is a relatively normal name.

Bronxzzzz Wentzzzz. Is like asking for your child to have a speech impediment.

I doubt the Jolie-Pitts are upset that Pete and Ashlee used Bronx, considering they have a Knox. *lol*

a really unique celeb will name their child Mary or Joe (as in Joe six-pack, or the plumber)...that would be unusual these days. bronx is an awful name, just say it out loud and picture talking to a kid..bronx, you need to eat your peas! Puhlease...awful!

I agree skigurl Bronx Alexander would sound good and Bronx Jolie-Pitt sounds better. His last name sucks. But this is what happens when loser breed.

actually, and Bronx Wentz doesn't sound nice together Bronx Simpson is okay. Bronx Smith or Bronx Jolie-Pitt would sound better ;) they love their x names over in the Jolie-Pitt household so they're probably really upset that Ashlee snagged this one!

i think the name Bronx is cute, but Mowgli? seriously? that's bad. it would be adorable if it were Bronx Alexander or Bronx Michael or Bronx Steven...a NORMAL middle name. but Mowgli is just as bad as tattoing the Disney symbol on the kid's ass

I guess their next child will be called Staten Island. You just know this couple will try too hard to stand out in baby naming. And Bronx Wentz are 2 harsh sounding words together

Bronx isn't awful to me, although it sounds like Pete's trying to sound butch when using it. Mowgli, well that's just cruel.
