Elon Musk Names His Son, X AE A-XII

Elon Musk and Grimes decided to take a different route when naming their 1-month-old son.

According to the birth certificate obtained by TMZ, the child’s name is listed as “X AE A-XII Musk” after the Tesla CEO and singer first attempted to spell the moniker “X Æ A-12 Musk.”

However, they were informed that no special characters or numbers would legally be allowed.

Shortly after X AE A-XII was born, Elon went on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast to talk about the birth of his son.

He told Joe at the time it was Grimes who “mostly came up with the name,” adding, “Yeah, she’s great at names.”

According to him, X AE A-XII is pronounced with X “like the letter,” while “the AE’ is pronounced like ‘ash.'”

But Grimes described the pronunciation differently on Instagram, telling a follower that “It’s just X, like the letter X. Then A.I. Like how you said the letter A then I.”

Hm… we’re not sure about this one. Couldn’t a simple “Kevin” do? Or “David?”
