Portman baby’s name reportedly is Aleph

(JTA) — The baby boy born last month to Jewish actress Natalie Portman and her fiance Benjamin Millepied reportedly was named Aleph.

The name was reported Wednesday by People magazine, citing an unnamed source. Portman’s representatives have not confirmed the name.

Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

The boy is the first child for the couple, who met on the set of "Black Swan." Portman, 30, won an Academy Award as best actress for her portrayal of a disturbed ballet dancer in the film.

She was born Natalie Hershlag in Jerusalem; Portman is her grandmother’s maiden name.
