After much speculation, it appears that the rumors are true: People is confirming that Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied have named their son Aleph.
I should note that this is not an official birth announcement, but People is pretty reliably reliable.
There are plenty of number names for babies – from Seinfeld’s joke about Seven to Sixx Design’s Five, as well as more conventional picks like Una and Octavia, but this one is new, at least in the English-speaking world.
What do you think? Is he a fresh, more meaningful, and attractively international version of Alex? Or is Aleph destined for the “Weird Names Celebs Give Their Babies” lists?
