And for now, that's all we know.

Baby Atlas certainly fills some big shoes. Not only is his dad an Academy Award-nominated actor, but the little guy's name is out of this world.

The astronomy-based name is dedicated to the Titan in Greek mythology. Atlas was punished by Zeus and forced to hold the Earth until the end of time, literally carrying the world on his shoulders.

And now it's turned into a bonafide baby name. Actress Anne Heche started the trend when she welcomed son Atlas Heche Tupper in 2009. After that, Atlas finally broke into the top 1,000 most popular names in the country, according to the Social Security Administration. Atlas now proudly sits at number 789, and with Norton's latest news, it's likely to be on the rise.
