Elon Musk’s new photo of son X Æ A-Xii sparks a flood of memes
It's been a few months since Grimes and Elon Musk welcomed their son X Æ A-Xii in May. Since the news of the birth, the couple has sent the internet into a frenzy over their son's name, how it's pronounced and how it appears on the official birth certificate.
Musk and Grimes faced a few issues with their son's name over the past few months. Shortly after announcing that their child is named X Æ A-12 Musk, it came to light that California law does not allow symbols or numbers on birth certificates. This law deems it illegal for Musk and Grimes to spell their child’s name “X Æ A-12.” All of this led to the couple changing their baby’s name to “X Æ A-XII,” replacing the 12 with the roman numeral representation.
In the past, the new parents have seemingly had problems agreeing on how X Æ A-XII’s name is actually pronounced. To make things easier, Grimes recently revealed that the baby’s nickname is Little X. Then, it was revealed that their son’s name appears as “X AE A-XII Musk” on the birth certificate. The child’s first name is X and his middle name is AE A-XII.
It is unknown why Musk specifically chose to write the caption in German. However, it's possible he's showing off his mastery of the German language as Telsa prepares to open its first European factory in Berlin.Twitter
