Yeah, you read that right. Elon Musk named his new born boy, X Æ A-12, and the buzz on the internet is just as expected. Looks like the name you’d give one of those robots in the lab.
Well, Elon isn’t worried about what people say, and his girlfriend, who is a Canadian Musician named Grimes, isn’t either. In fact, it’s a whole fun ride as they pioneer the world in new weird names.
Of course, Elon is the world’s real Iron Man, but many believe this is ‘insane’.
The explanation of the name comes in a tweet from the official account of Grimes. So, they are really serious about the name.
X for ‘unknown factor’
Æ for Artificial Intelligence
A-12 for their favourite aircraft.
Of course, just like you, we don’t know how to pronounce this name.
