I was recently reminded that Kevin Smith’s daughter is named Harley Quinn Smith. At the time I thought it was crazy (though really, who am I to talk about people naming their kids after fictional characters?), but compared to Nicholas Cage naming his son Kal-El, it seems positively ordinary.
I’m just not sure about Kal-El. Clark Kent Cage, sure, but Kal-El? School teachers have a hard enough time with non-standard spellings of Earth names, let alone Kryptonese.
Our oldest son is named after a soda company. *grins* We like unconventional! Shorten Kal-El to Kal or El for nicknaming and it sounds like it’ll work just fine.
A soda company? I hesitate to ask…
