Elon Musk and Grimes welcomed their son “X Æ A-12 Musk,” earlier this month and as you all can imagine, their baby’s name made headlines.
It was reported that legally they could not have that as their child’s name, shortly after the baby’s name was revealed, because it goes against the California state guidelines. Reports say that the child’s name wouldn’t be deemed legal seeing as how California prohibits numbers and/or symbols to be included in a child’s name.
However, Grimes revealed to her followers that they made a little adjustment to their son’s name. A follower asked if they changed their son’s name and Grimes said the baby’s name is now “X Æ A-Xii.” Which basically means they replaced the number 12, with the roman numeral.
Another fan chimed in and said, “Nice! Just removed the numbers to confirm to California Law.”
Grimes added that she thinks that the roman numeral looks better.
While many people were confused about the pronunciation and meaning behind their son’s name. Grimes broke down the meaning and said:
X, the unknown variable Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence) A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent (A=Archangel, my favorite song) (metal rat)”
