Bronx Mowgli voted worst celeb baby name of ’08. Agree?

December 11, 2008

USA/Rocker Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz might have thought that Bronx Mowgli was a “cool” name for their new son but few people seem to agree. Their newborn has just topped a list of the worst celebrity baby names of 2008 from a choice of about 72 celebrity babies born this year . The poll of about 5,000 members of the website found Bronx Mowgli was considered the worst celebrity boy’s name of the year and they voted Jagger Joseph Blue Goldberg, daughter of actress Soleil Moon Frye and Jason Goldberg, the worst celebrity girl’s name.

The best? Voters chose Harlow Winter Kate Madden as the best celebrity girl’s name. She is the daughter of Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. The best boy’s name was Caleb James Bice, the son of Caroline and Bo Bice.PEOPLE/RICHIE

“Harlow Winter Kate is a glamorous name, without being too unusual. Caleb James is a solid, old-fashioned name — Biblical, but not overused,” said founder and CEO Jennifer Moss in a statement.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony topped the chart with the best twin names of the year with son Max and daughter Emme. Sawyer and Coco, twin daughters of actress Dianne Farr, got the least amount of votes in the twin category.
