Elon Musk tells us how to pronounce his son’s name X Æ A-12 and it’s not that complicated


Elon Musk and his partner Claire “Grimes” Boucher welcomed their first baby on May 4, but the Tesla boss surprised everyone with the baby’s name: X Æ A-12. No one seemed to have any idea how to pronounce the name that seemed like a mathematical formula.

But a week later, we have a breakthrough. Musk on Joe Rogan’s experience on Thursday she finally told us how to pronounce her son’s name. It is “X Ash A 12”, where X is only “X” and the A-12 is only “A 12”.

Musk also said the name was primarily Grimes’ idea. Grimes also gave a breakdown of the name in a tweet.

The name that left everyone scratching their heads, however, may face some administrative problems in California as the Vital Records office accepts names that contain 26 alphabetic letters.
