A new survey shows that most U.S. parents opted to give their children more traditional names, like Jacob and Emma, instead of unsual monikers, like Bronx and Zuma, Reuters is reporting.

Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani named their son Zuma Nesta Rock.

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson named their son Bronx Mowgli.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their kid Apple.
