YES! I loved the Jungle Book!

Can you just see the interchange:
P: What should we name it, like, you know, the baby?
A: I dunno...I kinda like Brooklyn.
P: But that's Posh's kid's name
A: What about 'The Hamptons'?
P: How about Bronx, yeah, Bronx, it sounds so, so, dreamy...
A: Perfect! and so cultured too!

Well, "Bronx Mowgli" for a boy in rough New York sounds better than the 'boy named, "Sue"' that the late Johnny Cash sang about!

I wonder if Bronx's parents had all their [mental] marbles in place during the his pre-birth name search? Oh, well, I hope he lives up to his unique moniker.

A couple of questions, how does one become a baby-name expert? How many year college is that? Second, WHY? why would you do that to a kid?? Jeez, and people wonder what's wrong with this world.

Well I've heard worse names for a boy than Bronx but still....

Is their next child going to be named Queens?

And the part no one's mentioned yet is that his full initials are BMW. Carefully planned pretentiousness or coincidence?

Unfortunatly for baby Bronxs when his parents decide to nick name him,

'Oh lookie, little BM had a BM in his diaper'

OR

if they don't you know the school kids will..........

'Hey BM..........did you have a bowel movement yet?!!!'

If Frank Zappa can name his kid "Moon Unit", then anybody can name their kid anything.

Bronx isn't so bad, what bothers me more is when parents give their children average names but give them a whack spelling like "lisa" becomes L'eighza. Ugh. You're not doing your kids any favors, people will be spelling their names wrong forever!
