Choosing what your newborn should be called is not an easy task. However, there are some that pass the fence and the creature pays the consequences. This is the case of Elon Musk, who eventually explains how his baby’s name is pronounced.
The billionaire revealed it on the show The Joe Rogan experience. “It was my partner who practically got the name,” said Grimes. “”It’s just X, the letter X, and the Æ is pronounced ‘Ash’, so A-12 is my contribution. “
What does that mean?
After all the possible theories had been put forward, the mother, singer Grimes, explained that X Æ A-12 was inspired by elven language, equations and peaceful fighter jets. He said this via his Twitter account and made it clear that it was not a joke.
