Grimes explains the logic behind the name for her and Elon Musk's son
The couple named their baby X Æ A-12 Musk.
Elon Musk and Grimes welcomed their baby son to the world at the weekend, and welcomed millions of tweets in the process.
When asked about the baby's name, Musk replied that they had named him X Æ A-12.
Yep. X Æ A-12.
People were unsure whether or not they should believe the eccentric Tesla owner, but partner Grimes has seemingly confirmed the baby's name, while also explaining the logic (?) behind it.
According to Grimes, X represents the unknown variable, Æ is the Elven abbreviation for artificial intelligence, A-12 is the precursor to her and Musk's favourite aircraft, and A represents 'Archangel', her favourite song.
Musk then corrected a mistake in Grimes' tweet, obviously forgetting that she may be a bit distracted, given the fact that she had just given birth to a human baby...
SR-71, but yes

Best of luck to them teaching Americans to pronounce it, they still haven't got Aoife or Saoirse down yet.
