It’s been a bit difficult trying to keep up with Elon Musk and Grimes since they’ve announced the birth of their baby son. First, his name was X Æ A-12 and no one knew how to pronounce it. Elon spoke to Joe Rogan, but still, people had questions. The name will likely go down in history as the most confusing ever. Because Elon and Grimes added the number 12 to their little boy’s moniker, they had to change the name. Creative as the couple is, they were not to be outwitted by government agencies who thought they would dictate how they named their child. They converted the digits “12” to Roman numerals and voila — a new baby name was created. Well, not really, it’s just a different spelling. The baby’s name is now spelled X Æ A-Xii but many people are still clueless as to how to pronounce it.
The baby’s name is pronounced as follows: “ex-ash-a-12” according to Joe Rogan’s interview with Elon Musk.
According to a post by Grimes, the baby’s name is pronounced “ex-A-Aye-12”.
It seems no one is really going to know how to say this little guy’s name until they hear Elon and Grimes say it out loud. The good news is that X Æ A-Xii has a nickname and it’s a lot easier to pronounce than his real name — however you choose to say it.
His nickname is Little X. “X” sounds like what the little guy is going to end up being called, but you never know — Ash could come in as a cute nickname as well.
“Little X” does sound like a perfect name for Elon’s and Grimes’ child so only time will tell what nickname sticks.

Little X is Grimes’ first child. Elon Musk had six children with his ex-wife and though their names aren’t nearly as unusual as X Æ A-Xii they aren’t exactly common names. Elon and his first wife tragically lost their first child, Nevada to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
What do you think about Grimes’ and Elon Musk’s unique name they have given their son.
