Pop star Grimes recently said on Instagram that she and partner Elon Musk have slightly tweaked their son’s unusual baby name from X Æ A-12 to X Æ A-Xii. The reasoning? “Roman numerals. Looks better tbh,” she said to a fan in a comment. The change comes after reports that their original choice may not have abided by California laws, which forbid numerals in names. However, neither Grimes nor Musk indicated that legality played a part in their decision. When the Pastor Warning Anything You Say Or Do Could Be Used In A Sermon Shirt and I love this Tesla founder first tweeted out the name of his and Grimes’s newborn son in early May, people weren’t sure if he was serious. Was this combination of letters from multiple alphabets and numbers an actual moniker? Suggestions abounded on both the possible meaning and pronunciation. For a day and a half, the internet was abuzz with theories. Grimes later took to Twitter to clear everything up.

She broke it down symbol by symbol, starting with X: “the Pastor Warning Anything You Say Or Do Could Be Used In A Sermon Shirt and I love this unknown variable,” she explained. Then, on to Æ—”elven spelling of Ai (love and/or Artificial intelligence.)” As for the A-12? “Precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent.” Musk later corrected it to the SR-71, but the sentiment still stands. Looking to say it out loud? There’s no clear consensus on pronunciation yet, although Musk partially explained it during a recent interview with Joe Rogan. “It’s just X, the letter X,” he said. “And then the Æ is like pronounced ‘ash.'” So perhaps the child will be called ? Really, it’s anyone’s guess. This is a couple whose baby name melded together the elven language and CIA spy planes. Their joint motivations and minds are nearly impossible to decipher until they, themselves, decide to reveal their secret key. So, for any nickname clarification, the world will have to wait until the next tweet or Instagram comment.
