Grimes Has Explained The Meaning Behind Her Son's Name 'X Æ A-12' & My Brain Hurts


Elon Musk and Grimes are officially parents! Sound the trumpets on Mars, there's a new Space Prince in the galaxy.

Yesterday it was announced that the Tesla head honcho and his musician girlfriend had welcomed a brand new baby boy and they named him, X Æ A-12.

And just one more time for those in the back: X Æ A-12.

Just like you, the rest of the internet was scratching their heads trying to figure out exactly what, X Æ A-12, means. There were some valiant guesses, but we've now got the answer.

Today the 32-year-old new mum Tweeted the meaning behind her child's name and for those playing at home no, it isn't the code on the back of their wifi router.

“•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),” she wrote.

Wait, what? I'll do my best to decode here but I think X Æ A-12 is pronounced Unknown Ai Archangel Plane Rat? I just...I just don't know anymore.

And it's safe to say Twitter is fully glitching out over the confusing explanation.

I think I'm going to have to switch off and on again.

On the upside when he moves to Mars and becomes High Priest, his name will be about as common as, Bob.
