Alright, it’s confession time. I confess to being a little bit of a celebrity news junkie. Yeah, I know. But MSN makes it so easy with the little box of the top celebrity stories. Most recently I have been checking out all of the celeb babies that have been being birthed. Seems like even if you don’t have a hit song or movie, you can become famous, just procreate.
This morning the news that Ashlee Simpson had her baby was on the MSN page. Of course, I clicked on it because I was curious… gender, and most of all, name. Bronx Mowgli. I am not kidding. I mean, Bronx is bad enough. I understand the need for parents, especially celeb parents, to have an “original” name, but Bronx just sounds like it’s short for some sort of upper respiratory disorder. And then to add “Mowgli” to it??? The Jungle Book??? They named him after a feral child who talks to animals? Poor kid.
Ultimately I know that it’s every parents decision to name their child what they want, and really, it’s none of my business. But, I still get an opinion! I have a feeling that if I bring up this unfortunate moniker with my husband the conversation will go like this
Me: they named their baby Bronx Mowgli
Hubby: that’s not a name
Me: it’s his name
Hubby: doesn’t matter ’cause it’s not a name
So, I guess I’ll end with, all babies are a blessing, regardless of their name!
