    Default Nicolas Cage explains his son's name

    Nicolas Cage has revealed why he named his baby son after Superman.

    The Hollywood actor, who recently became a father again when his 21-year-old wife, Alice, gave birth to a baby boy, admits he named his son Kal-El - Superman's birth name - because he has "a warm spot in my heart" for comic books.

    Nicolas - who took his stage name Cage from Marvel superhero Luke Cage - says he is so fond of comics because they taught him how to read.

    He said of his son's unusual name: "We wanted a name that was exotic, was American and stood for something good. So Kal-el was a name we came up with, and then Kal for short".

    The 'Con Air' star has also spoken out about his love for Alice, who he calls "an angel".

    Nicolas, who fell for the former waitress when she served him in a Los Angeles sushi restaurant, told America's USA Today newspaper: "I don't think I could have done my last two or three movies if she wasn't there.

    "I never really experienced that kind of support. It was the perfect dynamic to bring a child into the world"

    "Kal-el" is American? Huh? So the Superman comic book is American but isn't the Superman character from the make-believe planet Krypton or something? I don't know Superman's back story so please someone correct me!!!!! Poor child. Why not just name him Kal if they are going to call him that anyway?

    What's to explain? He's a bit batty and he named his kid after Superman.

    We can only speculate if that young waitress mom had any misgivings. She knows what side her bread is being buttered on...so of course she's going to enthusiastically go along with it.
