When Elon Musk and Grimes’ baby first entered this world a month ago, his parents gave him the name X Æ A-12 Musk. Then the state of California harshed Elon and Grimes’s cool parent vibe by having a little rule about naming your kid with letters and ligatures. So then it was revealed that his new name would be X Æ A-Xii, which was a bit more acceptable, but still not totally legal in the eyes of California. The Blast got their hands on a copy of Musk Baby’s birth certificate, and after an annoying amount of confusing updates from both his parents, he shall henceforth be known as: X AE A-Xii Musk.
According to the birth certificate, X will be his first name, with his middle name being AE Xii. As they’ve explained previously, X represents the “unknown variable,” while AE could mean “Artificial Intelligence” or “Ash,” and A-Xii represents their favorite plane. The birth certificate shows that Baby X was born at Cedars Sinai Hospital on May 4th, aka Star Wars day.
Well, it looks like that’s it – no more changes or updates to X’s name. WRONG! This is Elon Musk’s kid, there’s going to be a new update every 14 days. Thankfully you’re not required to read a service agreement first (although if you did, I’m sure it would start with, “I agree not to roll my eyes profusely at this latest update“). During a recent interview with Bloomberg, Grimes revealed that her baby has a nickname. If they were really down with interplanetary space and experimental tech, they would have taken the Xii part of his name and paid tribute to robotics icon Alpha 5 by calling their baby Aye Yai Yai. They didn’t do that. In fact, they actually went downright boring.
Even though she recently had a child with billionaire Elon Musk (the child’s name is X Æ A-12, but she says she calls him “Little X”).
Earlier in the interview, we learn that Grimes has put together an art show called Selling Out, and one of the pieces available for purchase is a legal document to own a portion of her soul. The ticket price on such an item: $10 million. I see they’re preparing for all the future therapy Little X will need as a result of having Elon and Grimes as his parents. Smart!
But one thing Little X won’t need to work out in six to ten sessions is that nickname. That’s honestly the kindest things Elon and Grimes have done for that kid. Because hopefully when kids on the playground ask him where Little X came from, he can play it off like it’s his legal name, and his parents are just big Little Mix fans. And who doesn’t like Little Mix? (You know, in a poll of people whose opinions count). A pretty decent compromise for everyone involved, I think.
