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.

    Natalie Portman has named her son Alef. Alef is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and is also a silent letter. Fascinating choice!

    I would love to give her a copy of my e-book An Alef-Bet Kabalah: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/1653

    oh shut up most celebrities don’t use their real names anyway so it doesn’t matter what she named the kid. that’s like out of Paul Neman’s 5 daughters from his two marriages only one his oldest has a hebrew name Susan which means lily her younger sisters names are Stephanie which is french Elinor which is english Melissa which is greek meaning bee and often shortened to lissy or Missy and Claire which is french meaning lllustrious all five girls have the same father Paul Newman but the younger three have a different mother Joanne Woodward Elinor {Nell} is named for Joanne’s mother and her middle name is Paul’s mothers name Teresa Melissa {Lissy} is named for the first character their mother played in a movie and neither of them ever gave why Claire {Clea} is named Claire Olivia Claire could be to honor Joanne’s french ancestry or after a dear friend british actress Claire Bloom and I always assumed Olivia was in memory of another dear friends daughter who died of measeals a couple of years before she was born that would be Patricia Neal’s oldest daughter. at least he doesn’t have a long ass name like Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof

    Wow. As a mom who tried her best to find easy names that would not leave my kids constantly having to either have their name spelled wrong, or have them constantly spelling it for people, I find this an awkward name. He’s gonna be “Alex” so many times. Might just be me, though. I saw my dad wrestle with his name all his life, and I vowed not to do that to my kids.

    Natalie loves Israel more than the USA. Kind of looks like “Adolph” when you look quick. Weird.

    @YAAAS HONEY!: Same word, but apparently different meaning. Aleph/Alef is the letter A in Arabic.

    @Halli: It’s nice that she’s honoring her heritage. I agree with you though, Ezra is a beautiful name!

    Another Zionist scum and her closeted partner; playing pretend family, killing thousands of people every day in Palestine. She was quick to condemn John (of Dior) for his remarks about Hitler, but for some reason fails to address the atrocities her beloved Israel’s government commits on daily basis in the occupied territories. I want my money back for Black Swan.
