For Pete Wentz and wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, the decision to give their newborn son the ridiculous name of Bronx Mowgli simply came down to this:
"The Jungle Book was something that me and Ashlee bonded over. It's a cool name," the father of Bronx Mowgli Wentz told Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday.
Pete Wentz refused to reveal the reasoning behind the first name, however.
"We came up Bronx. We've been throwing [ideas] back and forth a while," he said. "It's kind of cool to leave the narrative what it is. People are stoked, pissed or whatever. And you're like, you know what: I don't think anyone has the real story."
Seacrest asked if the name Bronx Mowgli Wentz was actually a joke - and who could blame him for asking - but Wentz insisted that it's real.
"No, no, no, [Bronx Mowgli] definitely is his real name, but I don't think that anybody knows what the real story is of why or how."
