Proud parents Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz made baby name news on  Nov. 20 when they dubbed their newborn son Bronx Mowgli, after the famous NYC borough. However the couple is set to move to another borough, Brooklyn, this spring from L.A.

 

A family friend tells OK!, “They want to settle into their new life with a baby before they move to Brooklyn.”

 

Ashlee gave birth to 7-pound, 11-ounce Bronx in the same maternity suite at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. where Julia Roberts gave birth to her son Henry in June 2007. Sister Jessica and father Joe visited the new mom in the hospital.

 

So, what’s with that middle name? According to a pal of Ashlee, they chose the middle name Mowgli in hopes that he would acquire the qualities the fictional Jungle Book character Mowgli has.

 

“Pete and Ashlee want Bronx to be a survivor, just like Mowgli," the pal tells OK!.
