On May 04, tech billionaire Elon Musk and his girlfriend, Claire “Grimes” Boucher welcomed their first newborn baby. However, the whole world has immediately started a great debate about how to pronounce his baby’s unique name: X Æ A-12.

How To Pronounce X A 12
Grimes turns out to be the one who gives a special name to their son.

Right after the tech billionaire revealed the name, there have been many debates on forums with the only purpose: they want to determine what the true meaning behind this name is and how to pronounce it.

Finally, the owner of Tesla gave an explanation. He said that his newborn son’s name is pronounced as “X Ash A 12”. X is simply X, and A-12 is also just A-12. And the character Æ is a letter in the Latin alphabet and pronounced as “ash”.

Elon Musk also revealed that he wasn’t the one to give a name to the baby. It turns out to be an invention of his girlfriend Grimes. How surprised it is! When hearing the name that seems to mention “fiction” or “robot” for the first time, almost all of us suppose that Elon Musk is the author, and this time, we obviously go wrong!

A few days ago, singer Grimes made a post on her Twitter account to give an explanation about the baby’s strange name.

Accordingly, X is just an unknown variable. The character Æ implies Ai (that symbolizes love and artificial intelligence). Meanwhile, A-12 means a precursor to SR-17, the favorite aircraft of both Elon Musk and Grimes. This kind of aircraft has no weapon or defense, but just speed. It is great in battle and shows no violence. In addition, A also means Archangel, Grimes’s favorite song.

It is obvious that Grimes also has lots of unique thoughts as tech billionaire Elon Musk.
