Elon Musk named his son X Æ A-12


US Tech billionaire confused the Internet world because he didn't know what X Æ A-12 meant and how to read it properly.

Tesla CEO and singer Grimes have just had children. When a fan asked for the baby's name, Elon Musk briefly answered "X Æ A-12 Musk" and posted a picture of him holding his son. This name confused many people. Across forums from Reddit to Weibo, users are trying to decipher the meaning of "X Æ A-12" and try to read it properly.


Billionaire Elon Musk showed his son X Æ A-12 on 4/5.

Some people believe that the string that Musk said is a puzzle or equation is added to his real name. On Weibo, many believe that the name is derived from the language of the "goblin" (Æ) and the name of a CIA spy plane (A-12). Another explanation of a "Redditor" received much approval. This person said: Æ is pronounced "ash", A-12 is the name of an aircraft, this project was called Archangel. So Musk's 6th son could be named "X Ash Archangel Musk".

Despite speculations around the world, Tesla CEO did not explain further. Later, singer Grimes took to Twitter to explain that: X stands for "unknown variable", Æ stands for Grimes. Spelling is "Ai" and A-12 is the name of a plane as everyone explains. Grimes added that these characters are also references to the zodiac of the East, according to which 2020 is considered the "Golden Mouse".

However, according to Business Insider, Grimes's explanation only makes things more confusing, due to the fact that the character Æ is originally read as "ash" and it cannot be spelled Ai by Dictionary.com. .

Moreover, Elon Musk and Grimes are living in California. According to the state's birth registration manual, the name may only include 26 letters in the English alphabet. State regulations also do not allow names with alphanumeric characters.

According to Business Insider, if X is pronounced "ecks", Æ is pronounced "ash" or "Ai" according to Grimes and A-12 indicates the CIA plane is called Archangel, the baby "X Æ A-12 "may have an official name of" Ecks Ai Archangel ".
