The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment -

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.
