Quentin Tarantino and his wife, the Israeli model and singer Daniella Pick, have named their son Leo — but it’s not for Leonardo Di Caprio.

Some suspected the name of the new-born, which was revealed at his bris, Channel 12 reported Sunday morning, was for the actor who has starred in two of Tarantino’s films, including his most recent, “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.”

But little Leo, who was born on Feb. 22, is named for Pick’s maternal grandfather, Ari Shem-Or. Ari is a lion in Hebrew.

The baby is the couple’s first. They currently live in Israel. In November, they rented a home in an affluent neighbourhood in the northern part of Tel Aviv for nearly £18,000 ($23,000) a month.

Tarantino, 56, and Pick 36, married under a chuppah, or Jewish wedding canopy, in 2018, shortly after Tarantino finished filming “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood.” A Reform rabbi participated in the ceremony and Tarantino wore a yarmulke.

They started dating in 2009 when the director was in Israel promoting his movie “Inglorious Basterds.”

Pick is the daughter of the popular Israeli singer and composer, Svika Pick.
