Portman Said to Name Her Baby Aleph

Natalie Portman, who was born in Jerusalem, is reported to have named her first child Aleph, after the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

Well, if her second kid is named Bet, I hope it's a girl, because she could go by Betty.

But if she has a third, I fear little Gimel could have a troubled childhood.
