The 30-year-old actress and her fiance, who became parents in early June, chose a Hebrew name that can be also be spelled “Alef” – in Hebrew, it’s the number 1.

    Well it could be spelled “Elif”. E-leaf is how it’s pronounced. My bro’s girlfriend is turkish, and that’s her name. But since she ss turkish, I could be wrong.

    Alef isnt a Jewish name at all. It is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It is the equivilent to naming your kid “A” in English.

    dang, no love for natalie in here!

    i gotta say i know nothing of the hebrew language but this name is better than Sage Moonblood, Pilot Inspektor, Apple, or Jermajesty (all of which are actual names celebrities gave to thier poor children)

    mimi Says:

    Natalie is a class act, and makes perfect sense that she will pick a name with a special meaning to her heritage and not another boring American name.
    Who on earth named their child “Jermajesty”?
