Musk with X AE A-12 Photograph:( Twitter )
The Tesla CEO just welcomed his first child with girlfriend Grimes.
X AE A-12, don't try to solve it. This is not a mathematical formula. This is the name of Elon Musk's newborn son. The Tesla CEO just welcomed his first child with girlfriend Grimes. Musk announced the news on twitter.
A picture followed and then this name. Netizens were surprised. Some even lost faith in humanity.
What does this even mean?
The mother had to break it down. Letter by letter.
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️— ꧁ ༒ Gℜiꪔ⃕es ༒꧂ 🍓🐉🎀 小仙女 (@Grimezsz) May 6, 2020
•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 🤍

X- is an unknown variable.
AE- the eleven spelling of AI.
It is the shorthand for artificial intelligence. Also translates to love in several languages. Bizarre enough? There is more.
According to Grimes, A-12 is the precursor to SR-17, the couple's favourite aircraft. Musk had to correct her telling it was SR-71 not 17.
Grimes added the aircraft is great in battle, but not violent. Anyway, this detailed explanation did little to calm social media.
A bigger question followed. How on earth do you pronounce this numerical formula?
A lot of people tried.

Some even recreated some real-life situations saying that the child helping his teacher with the pronunciation or talking about his first day in school.

X Æ A-12:
How would Musk explain this name to the officer issuing the child's birth certificate?

Concerns about the child's future followed. What would his reactions be? Like a human baby or living up to his Robo-like name?
Say, he is being asked to wake up. Would he respond like a groggy teenager? Or would he make Musk proud?

Say, the child is being grounded. The mother says--go off to sleep. Is this how X AE A-12 would react?
Elon Musk: You're grounded. Go to your sleep chamber.— all good (@poop420guy69) May 6, 2020

This is--- hand's down the weirdest name ever. But someone has taken some serious offence!
Kim Kardashian, she thought she has stolen the show by naming her child North West.
Jason lee and Abeth Riesgraf aren't happy either. After all, they named their son-- Pilot Inspektor!
Clearly, the SpaceX CEO was better with innovations. The man has sent a car in space.
He has also given wacky names to his SpaceX machines and would have been surprised if the child's name was conventional!
