As obscure as it looks like, not many will think this to be a human name—not even from the most exotic of civilizations.

But Elon Musk, businessman extraordinaire and known eccentric, likely named his newly born son just that.

However, as cryptic as it seems, the only weird thing about the name is actually the pronunciation, which out of obscurity, many would likely get wrong at first try.

X Æ A-12 meaning

For simplicity’s sake, let us divide the name into parts as represented by each letter or term:

  • X, being derived from the alphabet, is simply pronounced as “x.” The unknown variable.
  • Æ is a ligature, which sounds as “ash.” Also the elven spelling of AI.
  • A-12 precursor to R17. “Archangel” Grimes’ favorite song.

Putting everything together, what we got therefore is a child named and pronounced as “X Ash Archangel.”

Being the joker he is, especially in social media, it is still yet unknown whether this is a prank on the part of Musk or something real.

I guess we will never truly know until the baby boy gets his Christening soon.
