Other Origin(s):Arabic
Kalel is a boy’s name of American and possibly Arabic origin. Kal-El is the Kryptonian birth name of Superman, invented in 1938 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. It resembles Hebrew characters meaning “voice of God,” so some interpret that as its meaning. Alternatively, Kalel may be a variant of the Arabic name Khaleel, meaning “intimate friend” or “close companion.” Whether you’d prefer baby to be a noble hero or a faithful friend, both meanings are equally appealing.
