When Raj suggested the name “Sherman” for Howard & Bernie’s baby, and Leonard said Sherman will be taking his mom to the prom...

Was that a reference to “The Nutty Professor”?  Since he’s a nerdy scientist just like the characters in TBBT, and was 35 years old living with his mother, it would make sense that Sherman Klump would be referenced.

Nope, it was a reference to Howard and the name Sherman.  Leonard figured giving a kid the name of Sherman, would cause the kid to take his mother to the prom, as his father did, although he denies it.   Much like naming Leonard, Leonard, putting him in advanced placement tests and having him learn the piano caused Leonard to go to his prom alone.
