According to the legal document, obtained by The Blast, little X’s parents made the tough choice of slightly changing his name after it was reported certain characters couldn’t be used due to California law.
In the birth certificate, the baby’s name is officially X AE A-XII Musk, confirming what Grimes said the couple changed the name too late last week.

Baby ‘X’ was born in Los Angeles on May 4, 2020, at 3:06 PM at Cedars Sinai Medical Center — the document states.
The official record lists the baby’s father as Elon Reeve Musk, and of course, refers to Grimes by her legal name Claire Elise Boucher.
After the baby was born, the couple first announced the baby boy’s name would be “X Æ A-12.” But, after a fan noticed a slight change in the name Grimes confirmed the change over Twitter.
A fan posted this message to the singer, “Nice! Just removed the numbers to conform to California law,” to which she responded confirming the change, “Roman numerals. Looks better tbh.”
Elon and Grimes explained the meaning of such a unique name, saying the — X stands for “the unknown variable” and the “AE” represents “my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial Intelligence).”
As for the A-12 (now A-XII) it’s named for a nod to the CIA’s Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance plane,( which has “no weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent.”
As you can imagine, this will make it a lot easier for ‘X’ to learn how to spell his first name when he starts school!
The ‘SpaceX’ founder shared a precious photo of himself holding his newborn son inside the hospital just hours after the baby was born. The best part, in the picture, he is wearing an ‘Occupy Mars’ t-shirt.
This is the first child for the singer, and Elon musk has five other children from his previous marriage.
As you know, Elon is now focusing on Saturday’s Space X rocket launch which will carry astronauts into space, a first for the company.
