Halle Berry Goes Cross-Cultural

Halle Berry's baby is named Nahla Ariela Aubry.

What, Arabic and Hebrew? (although the above site only mentions the Arabic element)

This site has it in full:

Nahla translates as honeybee in Arabic, while the Hebrew name Ariela means lioness of God.

However, there could be a link to two Walt Disney films - ‘The Lion King' and ‘The Little Mermaid'. In ‘The Lion King', the main lioness is called Nala, while Ariel is the lead character in ‘The Little Mermaid'.

After Shiloh and Suri, Hollywood is oh so Jewish.

Based on the article you cited, Berry chose names from Disney movies. Right on for an actress who lives by illusion and pretence. Please notice that the real lion of G-d (Ariel) is in the water, while what that Nachla is I do not know. Please also note that her significant other--there is an acronym for this on the US tax returns-- is named "Gabriel".
They are both very beautiful, as probably is their child--and we have a blessing for this--but for depth, Jews every time.
