Grimes Confirms X Æ A-12 Baby Name And Explains Meaning After Elon Musk Reveals It Via Twitter

By Jeff Mazzeo

Grimes shed some light on the interesting name that Elon Musk and she picked for their new baby boy.

The "You'll Miss Me When I'm Not Around" singer tweeted on Tuesday night, confirming the newborn's name less than 24-hours after giving birth. Elon previously replied to a curious fan and revealed the X Æ A-12 name but fans were not sure if he was messing around. Grimes' tweet puts that theory to bed and fully explained the name's meaning and why they picked it.

Breaking Down The Name X Æ A-12


A fan's theory guessed the name meant "X Ash Archangel" which wasn't too far off but she cleared everything up in her social media post.

"•X, the unknown variable ⚔️

•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)

•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent 🤍 + (A=Archangel, my favorite song) (⚔️🐁 metal rat)," the Canadian singer explained.

Well, we couldn't have said it better ourself! It makes perfect sense now.

Fans Thank Grimes For Clearing It Up


Her millions of followers were so thankful that she didn't leave them guessing too long but some still had a hard time accepting the name.

"WAIT SO YALL WERENT JOKING???" a shocked follower commented, while another one said, "oh dear we were all praying this was a joke."

Most people were just happy to finally have a grasp on what the hell was actually going on.

"thank you for explaining i did not understand anything," one slightly less confused fan replied.

"ok that’s cool and all but how do u pronounce it?" another questioned.

How Did We Get Here?


Grimes broke the news that she was expecting with a very graphic picture that featured her as a naked pregnant warrior back in January. Her hair was styled in long braids that brushed against her topless form. The artistic shot shows a shadow that resembled a baby growing inside her womb.

"being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being," she wrote at the time.

Elon and she began dating in 2018 and they took their relationship public by walking the red carpet at the Meta Gala that year. Interesting timing considering she gave birth on the same day this year's gala was originally scheduled to go down.
