Now, the official birth certificate for the singer and Tesla tycoon’s son has been revealed and we legally know what name and spelling they have chosen.
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.
After all this name drama, we are finally able to know what legal name they have chosen for their son. According to the birth certificate obtained by TMZ, 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.
For those that are still confused about how the baby’s name is actually pronounced, Musk recently broke it down. According to Musk, his son’s name is pronounced “X Ash Archangel Twelve.”
“So, it’s just X, the letter x, and then the Æ is pronounced Ash.” He continues by saying his contribution to the name is A-12 as in the Archangel 12, which is the “precursor to SR-71, the coolest plane ever. It’s great.”
Shortly after giving birth, Grimes also broke down the name for those interested.
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️
•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)
•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent 🤍
