Nope, not kidding:

Hopefully, it's "Kal-El" and it's just being mistyped as "Kal-el", or even the pedantic comic book geeks will pick on this kid!

I wonder of he will ever meet his fellow Kal-El, the baby boy with an artificial heart.

Yeah this is....I mean, I thought I was a dork.

Cage is such a fruit, he'll probably make the kid go to school in Superman clothes. I smell teen suicide.

Very cool.

I know of a couple of other parents who have named their son Kal-El and I think this is a great idea.

"Kal-El" means "Star Child" in ancient Kryptonese.  What better name could anyone possibly have?

That's cool.

IIRC, Jon Bogdanove, former MOS artist, also named his son Kal-El.

Every name that you can think of, can and has been made fun of.

Since this kid will be super-rich, he will have no problems, since everyone will want to be pals with the rich kid and get to hang out with movie stars at his house.
