Grimes and Elon Musk change baby’s name to X Æ A-Xii to comply with law

Grimes and Elon Musk

Goodbye, X Æ A-12. Hello, X Æ A-Xii.

Grimes and Elon Musk have changed their baby boy’s name, the “Miss Anthropocene” singer said, after it failed to comply with California law. The 32-year-old new mom shared the news on Instagram after a follower asked her what the baby’s new name was.

X Æ A-Xii,” she answered in the comments. She later added, “Roman numerals. Looks better tbh,” when a separate fan noted she “removed the numbers to conform [sic] to California law.”

The songstress also noted that California permits one dash in a name.



After their baby’s birth, Grimes offered up a detailed explanation of their child’s unusual moniker:
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)

It’s unclear whether the couple has finally come to an agreement about how to pronounce their son’s name.

It was reported shortly after X Æ A-Xii was born that his name could be problematic in the Golden State because an approved name can only use the 26 alphabetical characters of the English language.

Although they removed “12” from the name, Grimes didn’t mention cutting “Æ,” which she previously said represents “my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence).”

Though their nomenclature issues might be settled for now, they still are going to face problems when trying to explain the meaning behind their son’s unique moniker.
