Elon Musk and his partner, Grimes, have welcomed their first child together, and it’s safe to say the baby’s name has taken all the attention.
But it seems that the happy new parents may not be able to go ahead with their strange name choice thanks to Californian laws…
But all anybody has been able to talk (and joke) about is the baby’s very unusual name, but it seems that Californian laws may put an end to this strange venture.
But firstly, let’s start from the beginning…
For those of you that don’t know, Elon Musk is a very wealthy man.
Being the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineering Designer of SpaceX and Tesla, he has an awful lot going for him.
He is a seriously smart guy and quickly putting aside the Tesla Cybertruck disaster last year, his success is undeniable.
Meaning that it will certainly take a lot to drag this man down.
It’s time to talk about his personal life.
Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, went public with the billionaire at the Met Gala in 2018.
And on Grimes’ Instagram page, which is certainly a rollercoaster experience when scrolling through it, there is no sign at all of Musk.
Rumors began to circulate around Grimes being pregnant with Musk’s child.

She revealed to the media that she was, indeed, 7-months pregnant with Musk’s child.
Grimes said music and “raving” would play a big part in it.
“The baby has already been exposed to a lot of techno in the womb,” she said.
Grimes announced that they planned on raising their child as gender-neutral.
When asked, “Will you have a boy or a girl?”, Grimes replied, “They may decide their fate and identity.”
Talking on YouTube, Grimes added, “I don’t want to say the gender of the baby… because I feel like their privacy should be protected. I don’t think they can consent to being famous or being in public. And I don’t want to gender them in case that’s not how they feel in their life. I don’t know, I just feel like it doesn’t need to be known.”
We should completely respect that fact.
And this Twitter user was completely right, Musk’s most recent picture has completely broken the internet…
Including what they might be when they grow up!
Just chill, Luke.
Finally, the happy day arrived for the couple.
Even though an official birth date is yet to be confirmed, Grimes and Musk welcomed their baby into the world on Monday, with Musk sharing this adorable photo on Twitter in response to eager fans.
Showing you’re never too young for some ink…
It’s fake, obviously.
And when asked what the baby’s name is, Musk replied with, “X Æ A-12 Musk.”
But it really wasn’t. The baby is actually called “X Æ A-12 Musk.”
Keep scrolling to find out what it means.
Why? Because now fans are convinced the name is code adding up the baby’s actual name.
And found that the name could be code for something else.
And as for the “A-12” part of the name? Well, this fan thinks it has something to do with the Lockheed A-12 aircraft, whose internal coding is named “Archangel.”
And it might not mean anything at all, but…
And obviously, that started fuelling the conspiracy theory that “X Æ A-12” is simply a code for the baby’s real name – X Ash Archangel.
Explaining the ins and outs of her child’s name.
Grimes responded in the best possible way.
“I think it sounds like the name of the main character in the story… I hope he vibes with that. Ok, going back into the pain/beauty reverie for sum time just came on to add my thoughts – peace and love,” she wrote back.
By using the pronoun “he.”
It’s safe to say that in the last few days, the world has become obsessed with little X Æ A-12 Musk.
But it seems that there may be trouble in paradise for the new parents.
A family attorney told PEOPLE that Californian law will prevent them from going forward with the name because it features things outside the alphabet.
David Glass explained, “In California, you can only use the ‘twenty-six characters’ of the English language in your baby name.”
“Thus, you can’t have numbers, Roman numerals, accents, umlauts, or other symbols or emojis. Although an apostrophe, for a name like ‘O’Connor,’ is acceptable,” he went on to explain.
“They have an opportunity to appeal the rejection of the birth certificate application but it’s unlikely that it will be granted because, again, California…has been struggling with using symbols.”
They can simply remove the non-alphabet letters on the birth certificate and just continue calling their child X Æ A-12.
