Nah, Mxyzptlk would have been terrible. This guy will probably just be "Cal" by the time he gets to school.

Yeah, it's not the worst name they could give him, but it's still pretty lame.

Ironically, Nic Cage did an SNL skit many years ago about a dad who's terribly picky about the names his wife is suggesting for their newborn son. She keeps suggesting ordinary names, but he always says something like, "no, not Robert, the other kids'll just call him Bob the Slob...not Joe, they'll call him Slow Joe." Every plain-sounding name has some possible insult that he's worried about. Eventually they fade to a couple of days later, and the mailman comes in with a present addressed to "Asswipe Jackson" (or whatever their last name was). The skit ends with Cage protesting, "It's pronounced ah-ZWEE-pay!!"

Three things one could assume:

1) Cage is suffering from delusions of grandeur.
2) He's bitter from losing the Superman role.
3) He's wack.

That poor kid's gonna wish he had super powers when he's getting his ass beat everyday in school, and Jor-El, er, um, I mean Nick, won't be anywhere around to help him.

I must be the only one that actually likes the name. If had a son, I'd name him Lex!

He'll probably be going to a celebrity's kids private school, though. Who's gonna beat his ass? Twig or Mellow Starshine?

I'm a geek, but not a big enough geek to name my kid Kal-El. Cage's gots some brass to name his kid that knowing his kid will get bullied at school b/c of the Superman connection.

There's plenty of terrible names he could have chosen(Jermajesty, Apple, Coco, etc.)

Why couldn't the Cages just name their son Dylan like every other family in America?

We are talking about a guy who named himself after Luke Cage, hero-for-hire.

My sister's youngest son (now in his 20's) has the middle name of Jorel. No hyphen, and not his first name, but it's there.

We come from a long line of sci-fi geeks. Posted Image
