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 a clue on how to pronounce the name which looked like a maths formula.

But a week later, we have a breakthrough. Musk on The Joe Rogan Experience on Thursday did finally tell us how to pronounce his boy’s name. It is “X Ash A 12”, where X is just “X” and the A-12 is just “A 12.”

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


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