Natalie Portman and her fiance Benjamin Millepied welcomed a baby boy last month and have finally revealed the name of the baby to be Aleph.
Aleph, also spelled “Alef” and pronounced “All-Eff,” is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Much like how “alpha” is the first letter in the Greek alphabet. In Judaic Kabbalah, its esoteric meaning in the theological treaty Sefer-ha-Bahir, relates to the origin of the universe, the “primordial one that contains all numbers.”
The Black Swan actress was born in Isreal, making this symbolic name fitting.
Portman, 30 , and Millepied, 34, announced they were engaged and expecting a baby in December 2010.
The couple met while filming Black Swan – Portman played the lead role and Millepied was the choreographer for the film.
A wedding date for Portman and Millepied has still not been revealed.
