Elon Musk is one of the richest men on the planet and he’s also one of the most eccentric. The owner of Tesla, SpaceX, and other major companies, Musk welcomed his baby boy into the world this week with singer Grimes. Sharing some photos of the child on Twitter and even trolling him by editing on some face tattoos, Musk outdid himself when he revealed his son’s alleged name.
Now, we’re not quite sure if Elon Musk and Grimes are trolling us with this reveal but, apparently, they went and named their son X Æ A-12. That’s right… Nobody is quite sure how to pronounce that, or what it even means, but Elon made the announcement last night.
As you would expect, the jokes came flying after Musk and Grimes told the world their baby name. People thought they had seen the worst of celebrity baby names but, obviously, Elon Musk had been planning this one for months and couldn’t wait to get it off. He is now in the lead for the most strange baby name of all time.
Would you expect anybody else to name their child X Æ A-12? There is still some confusion surrounding this as it’s possible that Elon and Grimes are joking about the name in an attempt to maintain some level of privacy. However, we wouldn’t put it past them to actually do this.
