Here is something neat I came across that you comic buffs may get a kick out of.

COMIC URBAN LEGEND: Jerry Siegel came up with Superman's secret identity based on the elements directly above Krypton in the periodic table
Superman's Earth name, Clark, was chosen because it consists of Cl (Chlorine), Ar (Argon) and K (Potassium), the three elements that are directly above Krypton in the periodic table . I wonder if that's true, or just a coincidence!
If you take a look at the periodic table, sure enough, Chlorine and Argon ARE directly above Krypton on the table, and the three elements are right in a row, #17-19 - Cl,Ar,K.
