On May 5, the first-time mother took to Twitter to explain the inspiration behind her child's name, writing that X is "the unknown variable," Æ is "my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)" and that A-12 is the precursor to the SR-71 plane — her and Elon's favorite aircraft.

Reports soon revealed that the state only allows names to consist of the 26 letters in the English alphabet, so the child's legal moniker had to be changed to X AE A-XII. As for how to pronounce it? According to Grimes, "It's just X, like the letter X. Then A.I. Like how you said the letter A then I," she wrote on Instagram. Elon, however, told podcaster Joe Rogan, "I mean it's just X, the letter X. And then, the Æ is, like, pronounced 'Ash'… and then, A-12, A-12 is my contribution." Elon also has five sons from his first marriage. He lost his first-born child to SIDS in 2002.
