ORIGIN AND HISTORY
The name Mowgli was invented by English author Ruyard Kipling for the main character in the short story "In the Rukh" and the well-known novel The Jungle Book. The name was popularized by the Walt Disney film version of The Jungle Book, released in 1967.
In the book, the meaning of Mowgli is said to be "frog," but the meaning is also Kipling's invention.
