Ender is typically considered a boy’s name meaning ‘very rare’ according to name site Name Berry.
It’s primarily a Turkish name, and is the main character’s name in Orson Scott’s sci-fi novel Ender’s Game.
The sweet reason behind Ender’s name relates to his dad’s heritage; Alev is originally from Turkey and still visits his homeland often by the looks of his Instagram page.
As well as a screenwriter, Alev is also a keen photographer and his social media profile is filled with images of his beautiful home country.
Halsey and her beau welcomed her baby one week after she announced her new album, 'If I Can't Have Love I Want Power'.
