I thought I wouldn’t chime in here about the name Alef, but according to People magazine, the name gets an A+.

Natalie Portman

Really?

I know it is special, it is unique, it represents beginnings and the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.  You can read about the Hebrew letters here if you want to be educated.  Ok, all I am saying is that the name is the basis for teasing.  I mean come on, we have the company name Alef Bet and people crack up and think they are so unique by asking, “hey where’s the gimel?”  I just feel for this little guy, he will be tormented by questions, “where’s bet?”  Or better yet, when they learn the Hebrew alphabet in preschool and they start with “alef- bet- vet, gimel- dalet -hey….” Oh my, I get goose bumps.

But hey, I might be wrong.  The Jewish Journal thinks the name is better than some of the other celebrities.

I did name my oldest daughter Myahn.  Maybe I, too,  am a rebel?

What do you think?
