Cage Chose Kal-El 'Magical Ring'

Hollywood actor NICOLAS CAGE decided to call his baby son KAL-EL because he believes the name has a "magical ring" to it.

Cage, 41, and his 21-year-old wife ALICE welcomed the arrival of their first child together earlier this month (OCT05), and stunned fans when they announced the baby's unusual name, which was originally given to fictional superhero SUPERMAN at birth.

The LEAVING LAS VEGAS star says, "Alice and I wanted to have a name that was exotic and American and which stood for something good, because our son is exotic and he's American and we both think he's good.

"But having said that, I always liked the sound of the name. It has kind of a magical ring to it: Abracadabra Kal-El Shazam!"
