Natalie Portman's Baby Name: Aleph

Natalie Portman's one-month-old Millepied-sired baby boy is named Aleph (or Alef), People, Us, and Israeli gossips report:

Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, much like alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. Aleph is the number 1 in Hebrew and can also be spelled "alef."

Its esoteric meaning in Judaic Kabbalah, as denoted in the theological treaty Sefer-ha-Bahir, relates to the origin of the universe, the "primordial one that contains all numbers."

A pronounceable name that is relevant to the mother's heritage? Aren't they worried that Bear Blu Silverstone and Kal-El Coppola will tease him on the playgrounds of Hollywood? [People, Us, image via Getty]
