So just the other week, Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson named their kid after a borough! The boy is named Bronx Wentz! Yes, the name has all the originality you’d expect from two quirky celebrities, but its monosyllabic quality is deeply disturbing, along with the fact that the Bronx smells.
I think celebrities forget that it’s hard enough to grow up the spawn of famous people who are usually too busy doing talk shows to change your diapers. The poor kids hardly need the extra burden of having a name that’s either a pun or a gag or something to MAKE you gag.
But Bronx (unlike THE Bronx) is hardly alone. This article on cracked.com details the 20 worst celebrity child names of all time, including gems like Jason Lee‘s son, Pilot Inspektor, and Rob Morrow daughter, Tu Morrow. Word to my mama: Thank you for naming me Mike!
