Halle's Baby Name Released
Halle Berry and her boyfriend Gabriel Aubry aren't being shy about releasing the name of their newborn daughter. The daughter of the Oscar winner is............. Nahla Ariela Aubry.
The couple didn't explain the meaning or reasons why they chose the unique name, but it sounds a little like a mashup of The Lion King and The Little Mermaid. Internet sleuthing turned up Nahla as a moshav in Israel and might be the Arabic word for "honey bee" or "a drink of water". Ariela is a derivative of Ariel and means "lion of God."
Even though unusual names can cause people to blanch and say "Oh! That's a ......new one." in a disapproving tone, Nahla is unlikely to have to go by "Nahla A." because there are seven other Nahlas in her grade, something 50% of my children wish I had considered before naming them. Sorry guys!
