Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had a daughter on Saturday 5/30/2006.

- Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was born Saturday evening -- via C-section, according to People magazine -- in Namibia where her famous parents had withdrawn for the birth, aided by considerable protection from the African country's government.

- About Shiloh Pitt's Name: was named Shiloh, which means "Peaceful One" in Hebrew and, according to a Bible dictionary, refers to the Messiah. ("Messiah" comes from "mashiach," Hebrew for "anointed one.") A Hebrew name, Shiloh is "generally understood as denoting the Messiah, 'the peaceful one,' " according to Easton's Bible Dictionary, an 1897 work of biblical definitions. The child's middle name, Nouvel, most obviously translates from the French, meaning "new." If one were to take a literal approach to analyzing the entire name, Jolie and Pitt could appear exceedingly bold in dubbing their daughter the "new Messiah." "What is interesting is Brad and Angelina went all the way to Namibia to have their baby girl and rather than choose a traditional African name to signify the birth -- like many thought they would -- they chose Shiloh, also meaning 'God is great' in Hebrew".

- About the birth: Jolie thanked the staff of Cottage Medi-Clinic Hospital. Jolie's obstetrician from Los Angeles, Dr. Jason Rothbart, told People that he delivered the child, weighing seven pounds, by Caesarean section "due to breech presentation."

Where was Brad Pitt?: Pitt, he said, "was with Angelina in the operating room the entire time and cut the umbilical cord of his daughter. The surgery and the birth went flawlessly."

Hebrew baby names: Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt is only the latest instance of a unique name bestowed on a celebrity child. Lately, names rooted in Hebrew are all the rage. Right now, a truly original name for a celebrity's child might simply be Jack, or Jill.
