Recently, a fan left a comment on Grimes’ latest post on Instagram, wondering if they have change the name of their baby. “What is the baby’s name”, he asked.
Grimes took time to reply with a new name — “X Æ A-Xii”
Elon Musk and the Canadian music star Grimes made headlines with their new baby born son a few weeks ago. Not only because of it’s unusual name (originally named as “X Æ A-12 Musk”) but also because they broke the Californian law (where they reside). We’re unsure as of yet is Elon and Grime knew about this or no.
The Californian Law that’s that number or “Æ” letter is not permitted and a part of the law. Looks like they replaces “12” for Roman numerals and used “AE” instead.
But this is not the first time that baby’s name made headlines. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been doing this for years, in fact, fours years to be exact. When North was born, the headlines were breaking the internet for nearly a month. And the same happened with other three children; Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
When Elon Musk and Grimes announced baby’s name, it was a little bit different as no one literally had no clue how to pronounce a math-formula-look-alike name.
The name was apparently totally Grimes’ idea. Elon confirmed that “she’s great with names”, before going into how to pronounce the name “it’s just X, the letter X, and then the Æ is pronounced as “Ash” and then A-12 is my contribution. Archangel 12, the precursor the SR-71. Coolest plane ever. It’s true. Babies are awesome. I appreciate them more now.”
The updated name apparently follows the same logic of pronunciation. And the meaning.
