Call it a sign of the times: America’s resident genius, Elon Musk, has recently welcomed a child with his girlfriend, 32-year-old Claire Elise Boucher — otherwise known as singer Grimes. And the kid’s name is one for the books.

On Monday, Elon made the big announcement — the founder of Tesla and previous father of five welcomed a bouncing #6.

The 49-year-old entrepreneur shared a photo of himself and his newborn son.

When a follower asked for the little future worldchanger’s name, Elon dropped a bomb.

To be clear, “Elon” isn’t exactly common; he won’t soon be winning that key chain at Six Flags.

But with the new little Musk’s moniker, Grimes and her guy have really outdone themselves.

Take a look:

What is that?

Æ? American Eagle?

And “-12”?

I need a translation. Any takers?

CBS News offered the following:

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



Another tweeter tried to crack the code with “Jão.”

Here’s how that breaks down: “X = 10 = J Æ = ã A – 12 (count backwards) = O.”

An additional proposal:

“X = 10 in Roman numerals, 10 is an angel number representing god and his government on the earth, ‘god said’ appears 10 times in Genesis I. Grimes has a song titled Genesis. Maybe X means Genesis.”

Thankfully, Grimes provided an explanation online.

How’s this for an elaborate epithet:

“X, the unknown variable. Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence).”


“A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent + (A=Archangel, my favorite song) (metal rat).”


Got that?

Baby boy has an interesting life on the way. And it looks like they’re already planning his tattoos:

Along with that ink, mom and dad might wanna print a pronunciation guide.

Or the kid can just hire someone to walk ahead of him, teaching people to say it.

I’m sure he can afford it — dad’s worth $32 billion.
