Lest we forget that Superman's ancestry is The House of El - meaning that everyone in his family has the attribute....
Kara Zor-El (who goes by Linda Lee)
Lara Lor-Van El
*extra points go to the Earth-Two Superman, who quite literally has it changed to Kal-L.

So what gives? Personally, when I see something like this, it's a detractor. I'm someone who loves puns and subtle references to meanings of names and such, but this is overkill. It's at a point where it comes off childish to me - something that comics have been fighting against since their inception. I just think it's silly and when you look back on old Superman comics that have him continually fighting apes and Lois Lane sticking a lead box on her head to prevent Superman from seeing her face, it's embarrassing for something that is actually quite an impressive and amazing mythology.
