Yes, the river and the entire area was named for Bronck, but he only dwelt on the land for 3-4 years, it wasn't a manor, he wasn't royalty and he didn't do anything noteworthy or heroic so it seems odd. Also, the river was called 'Aquahung' (river of high places) by the native peoples. Ah many questions.
