    Natalie Portman's Baby Name Revealed

    Natalie Portman and fianc้ Benjamin Millepied get an A-plus for the name they picked for their baby boy.

    Their son's name is Aleph, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

    So what's in a name? 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."

    Portman, 30, met choreographer Millepied on the set of Black Swan, for which she later won an Oscar for Best Actress.

    Isn't that like naming your kid "A"?

    or 'alpha'. except aleph sounds better. and it's not unheard of to use it as a name i think.

    I thought Natalie was no 1 so shouldn't her son be (at least) no 2?

    These two aren't really getting married are they? I'm just waiting till the public forgets about it & they call it quits.

    Which shouldn't be long. It takes me mere seconds to forget about her.

    I think 'Aleph' is a great name.
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. She had a whole bunch of gorgeous Hebrew and French names, and she goes with "A"?!? STUPID.

    hah, same. I just imagine the baby looking exactly like the alien.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I like the sound of the name but, the meaning, etc all I can think is...pretentious much? What am I saying - this is Natalie Portman I am talking about.
