Pete Wentz explains the Bronx Mowgli thing



Tbdashleewentz112608 Pete Wentz has gone on the record about naming his new baby with Ashlee Simpson, calling the little tyke Bronx Mowgli. he told E!'s Ryan Seacrest that people don't really know the reason why they called their son that, but he lets us all in on the reasoning.

"We came up with the idea Bronx, we'd been throwing it back and forth a while ago," he says. And the middle name: "The Jungle Book is something me and Ashlee bonded over. It's really cool."

It's really cool until you realize you've named your kid after a cartoon child, and he needs counseling from the near-daily beatings he gets at school. But someone named something as innocuous as "Pete" wouldn't know anything about that, now would he?
