Elon Musk and Grimes whipped up a social media firestorm when they announced the rather unconventional name for their first baby together – X Æ A-12.
But now they’ve announced that they’ve changed their baby’s name, and fans are still confused as hell…
And after they changed their baby’s very unconventional name, fans have still been left confused over this even more unusual name.
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, but this is not their only controversial decision…
But Musk already has 5 children, a set of twins and triplets with his ex-wife Justine Wilson.
Now that’s a lot of children.
And this Twitter user was completely right, because Musk’s photo shortly after the birth completely broke the internet…
Finally, the happy day arrived for the couple.
On May 4th, Grimes and Musk welcomed their baby into the world, 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 was actually called “X Æ A-12 Musk.”
Why? Because fans were 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 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.
But regardless of what the name means, people have been trolling the hell out of it.
And the cruel memes just don’t seem to be stopping.
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.”
California law prohibits Indo-Arabic numerals in names.
Forcing them to change their son’s name.
She revealed the long-awaited name in her Instagram comments.
Baby X Æ A-Xii.
Yep, not really much of a difference (aka it’s still, well, bizarre) – the couple simply substituted in the Roman numerals signifying “12.”
And the big question is … how on earth do you pronounce this?!
But people are starting to grow tired of the media frenzy surrounding this baby, claiming that all Grimes and Musk want is attention.
What happened to regular baby names?!
So make sure to stay posted for further updates.
