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.

  • Audrey

    Aleph is the letter A in Hebrew not the number 1… :)

  • mary

    @candy:

    @Halli:
    it is the same in Hebrew

    In Cabala expresses the idea of ​​unity and the principle. Refers to the strength, activity, power, stability and unity as a social (collective) man.

    I think so…

  • nepenthes

    Don’t care what it stands for, it’s a horrible name…

  • Noa

    Alef dosn’t mean number one. Alef is the first letter hebrew

  • alephbatatsa

    @emily h: and don’t forget BRONX MOWGLI. yeah, really.

  • Cecille’D

    Alef (means number 1) because her son is her everything and will always be her number one :)

  • sarah

    She is so pretentious it’s ridiculous.

  • lafamepoma

    The main thing that I don’t understand is, does he feel Jewish? ‘Cause he’s French and in France there aren’t a lot of people that is Jewish, there are more Christians and people who don’t believe in God, I mean is creepy that he haven’t given his opinion about the name, but maybe he likes the name, so there’s nothing to say.

    Aleph? Weird name…

    If they wanted to give him a traditional Jewish (Old Testament Biblical) name, there are so many nicer ones they could have chosen instead. Poor kid.

  • yoohoo

    Congrats to her but I think it’s a bad name choice

  • Nitzan

    I live in Israel and speak Hebrew as a native language, and JustJared – you’re wrong!
    Aleph is not the number 1 in Hebrew, it’s the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet!

  • malabar

    @lafamepoma : Benjamin is jewish too! He’s french but his origin is jewish

  • Who cares?

    I speak spanish and for me the pronunciation of that name is not difficult at all. Who cares if it is jewish or what? after all you are not going to raise him. If his parents are happy then that’s all that matters.

  • lala

    @candy: It’s pronounced- A (like the A in Alex) LE (like in LEnding) and F – A-LE-F. Aleph.
    And 1) it’s not the ‘number 1′, It’s the first letter in the Hebrew Alphabet. And, No, the Arabic first letter is pronounced differently(!)
    2) It’s not a Jewish name, nor a Hebrew name. He’s probably the only baby in the world with that name.
    3) In Israel they announced the name in the media at the day she gave birth. Man this site is waaaayy too late….
