Elon Musk and Grimes officially name their baby X AE A-XII Musk after being forced to change first choice – The Sun

ELON Musk and Grimes had to change their son's name because it was illegal under California law, the child's birth certificate confirms.

Last month the couple announced the baby was named X Æ A-12, but were forced to choose something else as the state does not allow symbols in a name.


The official document, obtained by TMZ, shows the Telsa CEO and singer named the boy X AE A-XII Musk.

X Æ A-Xii is not a "normal" name, but a series of letters and numbers that have specific meaning to Musk and Grimes, real name Claire Boucher.

The new mother posted on Twitter to explain the origins of the name, with X being the unknown variable often seen in mathematics.

Æ refers to the elven spelling of Ai, which is short for Artificial Intelligence and also means love in Japanese.

Lastly, A-12, which is now A-Xii, is the couple's favourite aircraft – a Lockheed – and a precursor to an SR-17, better known as Blackbird.


Grimes said in her Twitter post: "No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent."

The 32-year-old Canadian also added that the A also refers to Archangel, her favourite song.

Although it could be perceived to be difficult to pronounce, it is quite simple.

X is spoken like normal, while Æ is ash which is pronounced like an "a" in "cat" or "bat".

And A-12 is simply pronounced with a long "A" sound and  "twelve".

So altogether the name could be pronounced as X-ash-A12, but the couple are yet to confirm.

Musk, 48, has five sons from his previous marriage.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO has now welcomed seven children into this world, but sadly one died as a baby.

His firstborn, Nevada Alexander Musk, suffered from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) seeing the baby pass away at just ten weeks old.

Musk and his first wife Justine turned to IVF afterwards and the billionaire's spawn grew rapidly.

In 2004, they had twins Griffin and Xavier, before welcoming triplets two years later as Kai, Saxon and Damian were born.

Musk was also married to English actress Talulah Riley twice, but the couple did not have any children.
