Cage explained the meaning behind the name, and recalled how his disc jockey father had blasted The Beatles’ Let It Be album, particularly the song Across The Universe, on his radio station.

When National Treasure heard the song for the first time at the age of four, he was left “frozen and paralyzed by the music.”

Since then, Across The Universe – coined by John Lennon – has remained “the favorite song ever written by Cage” and holds a special place in his heart.

He declared, “Because of Across The Universe, her name will be Lennon Auggie, Augie after my father.”
