Isla Fisher reveals Simpsons-inspired baby name

Did Isla name her son after Mr Burns? Excellent…


Every now and again we hear a baby name that reminds us of someone so clearly that we can’t get it out of our heads. So when we heard that Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen have named their newborn son Montgomery there was only one image in our minds… Mr Burns from The Simpsons!


Isla gave birth to her third child, Montgomery Moses Brian (yes Brian) Baron Cohen, on March 17 according to TMZ. The rather long-winded name reminds us of Charles Montgomery Burns, despotic owner of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant in The Simpsons. It apparently means ‘From the wealthy man’s mountain’ or more simply ‘Man power’. We just hope the baby doesn’t turn out quite as evil as Mr Burns and his first words aren’t “Release the hounds!

The couple already have 2 daughters, Olivia, 7, and Elula, 4.

What do you think of this old establishment name? Let us know in the comments below.
