Elon Musk announced Monday the birth of his baby with singer Grimes on Twitter and fans asked for details. Musk, who was already a father of five, shared a simple photo of him with his newborn son. When a fan asked what the baby’s name was, the billionaire entrepreneur gave a mysterious answer: X Æ A-12 Musk.

Yes, Musk tweeted to a fan that his and Grime’s son was named X Æ A-12 Musk. How do you pronounce this name? No one could know for sure, but some fans have published interesting theories online.

One of the most popular theories is that the baby’s name is X Ash Archangel. How does this translate into X Æ A-12? Æ is a ligature meaning Ash, said a Twitter user. A-12 could refer to a Lockheed A-12 aircraft – code name: Archangel.

Another Twitter user speculated that the name could be Jão. “X = 10 = J Æ = ã A – 12 (countdown) = O”, explained the Twitter user.

Someone else used a different decoding method to find out what X Æ A-12 really meant. “X = 10 in Roman numerals, 10 is an angel number representing God and his government on earth,” said God, “it appears 10 times in Genesis I. Grimes has a song called Genesis. Perhaps X means Genesis”, Tierney Mannion tweeted. . .

The couple haven’t left fans in the dark for a long time, more or less. Grimes, whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher, tweeted an explanation that still left people scratching their heads. “X, the unknown variable,” he writes. “Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love and / or artificial intelligence)”.

“A-12 = forerunner of SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, only speed. Excellent in combat, but not violent + (A = Archangel, my favorite song) (metal rat),” he said. . continued. The Pius.

However, we cannot pronounce this series of symbols and letters that somehow constitute a baby’s first name. “Thanks, it didn’t help at all,” one person responded to Grimes’ explanations on Twitter.

Symbolic names are nothing new to the 32-year-old singer. In a 2019 Grimes profile from Culture magazine, it was revealed that the singer wanted to go to “c,” which is “the symbol of the speed of light and the name she legally adopted last year because Claire has been” plaguing “”.

Musk, 48, is the father of five other children: a pair of twins, Griffin and Xavier, and a set of triplets, Damian, Saxon, and Kai, conceived through in vitro fertilization with his first wife, Justine Wilson.

In addition to the first photo Musk shared of X Æ A-12, he also shared a photo of the baby with a filter that tattooed his face. It seems that the couple is already having a lot of fun with this child.
