While PopWatch would generally rather discuss a star’s performance than his or her personal life (yes, we were as breathless as anyone else about Britney’s baby, but that’s because the Chaotic star’s personal life is her performance), we can’t let Nicolas Cage’s creativity go unnoticed in the generally mine-strewn field of celebrity baby names. The comics-loving actor and wife Alice Kim Cage became parents today of a boy they named Kal-el Coppola Cage. By naming his kid after Superman (Kal-el is the Kryptonian name that papa Jor-el gave his baby before sending him to Earth), the Lord of War star has figured out the answer to the conundrum of how to give your child a moniker in keeping with the trend of wacky celebrity baby names while insuring that the kid’s name won’t ensure him a playground beating. I mean, who’s gonna hassle a kid named after Superman?
