Last few months, the couple made headlines with their baby born’s name X Æ A-12, which many found weird to digest. However, recently they changed the baby’s name from X Æ A-12 to X Æ A-Xii, to be per the California State law, as it is prohibited to use symbols in names, so 12 was changed to Xii.
It’s worth noting that once Grimes and Musk had the child, Grimes took to social media to explain the meaning behind the name.
Check out the detailed explanation of the name below:
•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)
