Natalie Portman’s son was born almost a month ago, yet his name hasn’t been announced until now.Via Hollywood Life:
According to the Israeli TV show Good Evening with Guy Pines (remember, Natalie was born in Israel!), Natalie and Benjamin have chose the name Alef for their son! Alef is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It has been said that the letter represents the “oneness of God” and is related to the element of Air.
ALEF!!!! Are we naming kids after letters of a foreign alphabet now? Alef? When I say it out loud, it sounds like a retarded kid trying to pronounce Alf. How is it pronounced? Is it pronounced a leaf? Or is it pronounced a lef. Anyway, the name Alef Millipied is so Natalie (see: pretentious as fuck)
