Elon Musk Names His Son X Æ A-12, People Try To Decipher The Meaning With Memes


On May 4, Elon Musk, the man behind SpaceX and Tesla, welcomed a baby boy with girlfriend and Canadian singer Grimes (aka Claire Elise Boucher) who announced that both the newborn and the new mum are happy and safe. He and his ex-wife Justine have five other children, Griffin, Xavier, Damian, Saxon and Kai.

According to CNN, he posted pictures of his bundle of joy as well as his name on request from Twitter users.

Although several parents go off late for gender-neutral names, the mysterious choice the couple made left internet people confused.

Needless to say, this uncommon option has sparked an online meme fest. Below are the more humorous ones.

When someone speculated the pronunciation could be “X Ash Archangel” Elon Musk liked his comment, according to BBC. Later, however, Grimes posted a tweet that decoded the meaning behind it.

USA Today states that there are 3 components in the name – the unknown variable X, the Latin character Ash, and Archangel, a CIA helicopter. What are you doing with it-imaginative or crazy?
