While it was kinda fitting that tech billionaire Elon Musk’s new addition was born on May 4, Star Wars Day, what is driving the world bananas is the baby boy’s name.
Musk and girlfriend Grimes revealed the name over Twitter.
X Æ A-12 Musk

“X Æ A-12”
Grimes issued an explanation of the spelling, but not the pronunciation.
•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)

Speculation aside as to whether Musk is totally having a lend, Lisa thought she do us all a favour and give the pronunciation a crack…
