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.
Unless you've been under a rock, you'll know that the couple has given the baby an unusual name, shall we say. But it seems there could be more than meets the eye, as Grimes has just explained the real meaning behind their slightly odd choice...

Elon Musk is a very wealthy man.
via: Getty ImagesBeing the founder, CEO, and Chief Engineering Designer of SpaceX and Tesla, he has an awful lot going for him.
But he had a little bit of an accident last year...
via: Getty ImagesWhen unveiling Tesla's latest Cyber truck design in November 2019, Musk got, for lack of a better word, a bit cocky.
He claimed that the automobile was unbreakable.
via: Getty ImagesSo confident in the shatterproof design, he asked Tesla design chief Franz von Holshausen to throw a ball at the Cybertrucks window.
Maybe he threw it a little hard...
"It worked in rehearsals..."

Inevitably the incident led to people mocking the living hell out of Tesla.

The general design of the Tesla Cybertruck raised some eyebrows anyway...
People were mocking Elon directly.
Not that Musk seems to care...
Musk is certainly a man who knows what he's doing.
via: Getty ImagesHe is a seriously smart guy, and even if we don't like the current Cyber truck design, we bet they're the start of a new era in automobile design.
He seemed to immediately bounce back from the Cybertruck disaster...
via: Getty ImagesMeaning that it will certainly take a lot to drag this man down.
And now, putting aside his professional life...
via: Getty ImagesIt's time to talk about his personal life.
Since 2018, Musk has been in a relationship with Canadian musician, Grimes.
via: Getty ImagesGrimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, went public with the billionaire at the Met Gala in 2018.
The pair have kept their relationship very private...
And after a series of unusual Instagram posts back in January...
Eventually, the news that everyone was waiting for came shortly after.the media that she was, indeed, 7-months pregnant with Musk's child.
When she was asked about what kind of mother she will be...
via: Getty ImagesGrimes 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.
It was apparent that Grimes and Musk had more ideas for their child...
via: Getty ImagesGrimes announced that they planned on raising their child as gender-neutral.
More specifically...When asked, "Will you have a boy or a girl?", Grimes replied, "They may decide their fate and identity."
She then went into more detail...
This will be Grimes' first baby.
Fans couldn't wait to see the baby.

But it seems there could be more than meets the eye when it comes to the name...Why? Because now fans are convinced the name is code adding up the baby's actual name.
One fan did a little digging...And found that the name could be code for something else.
"Æ" is an e-ligature named "ash."

Sure, it's just a tweet from a fan.

via: Getty ImagesElon Musk liked the tweet - fuelling the conspiracy theory that "X Æ A-12" is simply code for the baby's real name - X Ash Archangel.
...Or maybe not.
