Elon Musk Names His Son X Æ A-12, People Try To Decipher The Meaning With Memes


The man behind SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk, welcomed a baby boy with girlfriend and Canadian singer Grimes (aka Claire Elise Boucher) on May 4 revealing that both the newborn and new mommy are happy and healthy. He has five other children Griffin, Xavier, Damian, Saxon, and Kai with his ex-wife Justine.

According to CNN, at the request of Twitter users, he shared pictures of his bundle of joy as well as his name.

While a lot of parents are going for gender-neutral names off late, the couple’s cryptic choice left people of the internet puzzled.

Needless to say, this unusual choice triggered a meme fest online. Here are the funniest ones.


According to BBC, when someone guessed that the pronunciation might be “X Ash Archangel”, Elon Musk liked his comment. Later though, Grimes shared a tweet decoding the meaning behind it.

USA Today reports that the name has 3 elements – the unknown variable X, the Latin character Ash and a CIA aircraft named Archangel. What do you make of it – creative or crazy?
