Grimes and Elon Musk sparked controversy earlier this year when they revealed a very strange name for their baby, X Æ A-12. When the news was first revealed, many fans of the couple took to their social media accounts to ask how to pronounce it.
Additionally, other media reports questioned whether or not it was even legally possible to name a baby using a number. As it turns out, Hot New Hip Hop reported today that Grimes and Elon Musk have a different nickname for their child that is a lot less eclectic.
During a chat with reporters from Bloomberg regarding her new art exhibit, “Selling Out,” Grimes dished on what it was like to welcome a baby into the world, in addition to their newborn child. According to the outlet, Grimes and Elon call their child, “Little X.”
As it was noted above, Grimes and Elon Musk discovered that it wasn’t legal to name one’s baby with a number, under California law. For that reason, they chose to add two roman numerals in place of the 12, which wound up working perfectly.
Regarding the rumors of how the name is supposed to be pronounced, many fans online thought it was supposed to sound like “Ash Archangel,” but Elon later said it was just “X Ash.”
Grimes, on the other hand, said the name is supposed to be pronounced like, “Ex-Eye.” During a later conversation with one of her fans online, Grimes said it was possible for their baby to have “many names.”
Either way, it’s been a great time for Elon Musk and Grimes. Elon, on the other hand, has stirred controversy with his tweets, especially during the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this year, it was reported that Elon took to his Twitter account to slam a county government for not allowing him to open up a Tesla factory.
Musk later said he was going to be moving his plant to Texas or Nevada if they didn’t allow him to resume his normal activities. During a chat with Joe Rogan on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Elon also questioned where the line is drawn between safety and civil liberties.
