Elon Musk’s Girlfriend, Grimes Explains Baby X Æ A-12’s Name

Both Elon Musk and Grimes have confirmed the name of their child as X Æ A-12 on Twitter.

This has raise a lot of questions on Twitter of people asking if it’s a joke and others asking what it means and to pronounce the meaning. 

In a tweet, Grimes has explained the various components that went into X Æ A-12’s name. 

They seem to have put a lot of thought into this! X, obviously, refers to “the unknown variable.” Æ is “my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence),” though as many have pointed out, Æ can be pronounced “ash” as well. A-12 is a shout-out to the Lockheed A-12 aircraft, “precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent.” The A in A-12 is short for “Archangel,” which Grimes says is her favorite song.
