Aleph Millepied: Natalie Portman's Son's Name?

Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied have reportedly named their son Aleph!

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.

“I’ll be out of the public eye after [the baby's born],” Natalie has previously told People – and she hasn’t been photographed since giving birth!

Natalie and Benjamin met while working on Black Swan together and announced their engagement and her pregnancy back in late December.

That’s also how it’s said in arabic. I believe it’s pronounced Auh-lef

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 is the first letter in the hebrew language >.> it’s parallel to a. and it IS weird to name him that way…

# 9

It also means the letter A in Arabic.


I think it’s Alef.

I thought she was going to name him Ezra, a Hebrew name which I think sounds nice.

and goooood stop listening to arabs >.> it’s pronounced exactly the way it’s written >.>

alef is the first letter in the arabic language too..

Its the first letter of the alphabet (letter A) in Hebrew, Arabic, Persian and Urdu.

Congrats to Natalie! Hopefully she’s home relaxing and enjoying her new baby!

So when they have a second baby, will they name it the letter B in Hebrew?


letter b is the second letter in arabic language too..

she’s so stupid. that’s a girls name

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.

Is Aleph or Afef? Whatever, both are horrible ..

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)

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”?
