What’s in a name? In the case of Ashlee Simpon’s baby – Bronx Mowgli – it’s just the latest demonstration of her Disney devotion.

While Simpson and husband Pete Wentz – who welcomed their son Thursday night – haven’t yet discussed the inspiration behind the baby’s unique moniker, “Mowgli” is, of course, the lead character in Disney’s animated classic, The Jungle Book.

Before that? The couple prepared to welcome their little mouseketeer with a playful Winnie the Pooh-themed baby shower.

And who can forget their Alice in Wonderland wedding, complete with Mad Hatter cake?

So, while Mowgli is unique, Wentz has said they want a soccer team of kids. Luckily, there are plenty more Disney-inspired names to embrace – Pinocchio and Cinderella spring to mind!
