Tesla CEO Elan Musk and his Girlfriend Grimes Name their First Baby X

Tesla Named his Son as X Æ A-12

Tesla and SpaceX chief Elon Musk and Canadian singer Grimes have been dating since 2018, and they recently welcomed their baby boy on Tuesday, May 5th. Musk kept the netizens updated about the mother and the baby while netizens congratulated the parents and also welcomed the little one into the world. Later, he also revealed the name of his son on Twitter. 

A netizen asked Musk the name of his son, and he replied, "X Æ A-12 Musk." For a while, people thought he was joking and was naming some cryptic names for his son, but later they figured out how to pronounce the unusual name. A Twitter user suggested with an elaborate explanation, writing, "X Ash Archangel."

The user explained with a tweet about the origin of the name, and the explanation was liked by Musk, which only means that it is probably the correct pronunciation. The tweet further revealed that the name could have something to do with the Scandinavian alphabet Æ, which is pronounced as 'Ash.' 

A-12 could be a reference to the CIA aircraft, Lockheed A-12, which is codenamed, Archangel. Hence, X Ash Archangel. Have a look at the tweet below.

When Musk revealed the birth of his son, many netizens talked about the fact that the child was born on Star Wars Day. One user wrote, "Elon's child is born on May 4th?? If this is a start of a sci-fi movie, I'm watching from the start to the end of the credits. Congrats."

 

As requested by a netizen, Elan did share a photo of him holding his baby.
