So, if you figure out how to pronounce X Æ A-12 , feel free to let me know in the comments. But that, BUZZ Fam is the name of Tesla Inc CEO and billionaire, Elon Musk new born son.
Musk and singer, Grimes welcomed their son on Monday. Musk posted on twitter, that “mom and son” were good, before later on informing us that he would be named X Æ A-12.
Of course, that sent Twitter in a frenzy, poking fun at the unusual name. What does X Æ A-12 mean? How would it be pronounced? Why would anyone name their child that?
It wasn’t long before Grimes came on Twitter to give insight into why they named their first child together something that looked like a space algorithm.
Æ, a ligature of a and e known as ash, appeared in Latin and Old English but has mostly fallen out of use. However, in some languages such as Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic, Æ is classed as a letter.
The singer has used Æ before, naming a song on her latest album 4ÆM.
The A-12 is a Lockheed plane built for the CIA. It was known by designers during its development as Archangel.
She also claims Archangel is her favourite song but does not explain who the song is by.
Yea, everything is clearer now.
It’s still very unclear how it’s pronounced.
