PEACHES’ BABY NAME MYSTERY
PEACHES Geldof, engaged to Jewish indie rocker Thomas Cohen, has called their first son Astala. Bob Geldof’s daughter says she got the name from a baby-name book, telling Hello that she wanted “a Jewish name because my fiancé is a Jew and the name is the male version of Esther”. Not a name I have heard of or located in the JC database, which covers 170 years of births. Explanations welcome.
