Actually, She's Named After the Clone


Nicholas Cage says he named his son Kal-El (Superman's birth name) because he has a soft spot for comics, which taught him to read. I'm down with that line of thinking, because comics (and the patient father who read them to me every night) did the same trick for me. I was the only five-year-old on my street who knew the words "ragnarok" and "malefic".

I also got the shit kicked out of me a lot.

On a related note, I love thinking about my little sister having to explain to everyone she knows for the last 29 years why her middle name is Gwen.

She's just lucky my parents didn't go with my first recomendation, "Toothar". On second thought, who am I kidding? That would be a fucking awesome middle name.

quien es toothar?
 
I'm thinking it's a mispronunciation of "Thor." I could read at 5, but not all that well.
 
Why didn't you name one of the boys Toothar?
