  • Elon Musk names son 'X A-12'

    Elon Musk and singer Grimes welcomed a son on Monday, but the world puzzled over the baby's name. Musk said it was "X A-12," but it wasn't until Thursday, when the Tesla and SpaceX founder appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience, that he confirmed the name's pronunciation.

    "How do you say the name?" Rogan asked. "Is it a placeholder?"

    Apparently not. Musk says the name is pronounced "X Ash A Twelve," pretty much just as it looks. ("" is a character used in some languages, including Danish and Norwegian. It's often pronounced "ash," but some people pronounce each letter, saying "A E.")

    Shouldn't the title be Elon Musk & Grimes name son ... because I'm sure they both decided that name?

    Well, it's typical them and this was also in the media over here. Love Grimes and somehow I still feel this isn't their son's real name.

      I read about this, but also read it won't be his legal name because California doesn't allow that kind of nonsense. They don't even allow diacriticals.

        I posted this on Grimes' thread when it was actually announced DAYS ago, but too bad nobody cares to check out her...

            They'll Probably reduce all of ...that and he'll go by 'Ash'. That seems to be the easiest part of his name to 'get' even if it's in the format.

              To be honest, his private life could easily keep up with the Kardashians. He only gets the credit because of his fortune and the scientific knowledge he's got. Beyond that, there's not much substance though.

                  Shouldn't the thread title be "Elon Musk and Grimes try to name son X A-12"?

                                Admittedly, the point that mattered even more to me was that they tried, but it was rejected.
                                Like, "stop spreading that that's his actual name when it's not".
                                But yeah, we can safely assume that they BOTH agreed on the name... and she's just as much of a "celebrity" as he is, so why pretend like she's got nothing to do with it?

                                  Due to Californian law, the name was changed from "X A-12" to "X A-Xii".

                                      Ex-Ash-Ey-Twelve. Elon Musk is living in his own fantasy world and if he wasn't that rich, he'd probably be called 'white trash' considering his lifestyle.

                                        Wth? What even is the point of that? Also, I'm surprised that the wasn't an issue, as it is barely known in the US and will make it tremendously difficult when required to enter your name into an electronic system somewhere. Hell, I have an "" in my last name which according to German rules can be replaced with "oe" if need be, but it continues to give me trouble when dealing with foreign authorities, because they tend to replace it with a simple "o" which turns my name into something different from the official spelling(s) in my passport.
                                        I also heard from a US Latino, that many systems aren't even capable of processing two last names without a hyphen - which shouldn't really be that difficult to do, should it?

                                        The poor kid has my deepest sympathy.

                                          This. Poor people are crazy. But when you're rich, you're just "eccentric".

                                            LittleLinda : I'm sure that if Musk's parents had given him such a weird name, he wouldn't have passed a similar one to the next generation because he'd know how it feels to be discriminated based on your name. But how are Claire and Elon supposed to know...
