Elon Musk Changes Baby’s Name to Something Just As Bizarre

Elon Musk and Grimes change their baby’s name to comply with the law.

After catching heat for naming his son “X Æ A-12,” Elon Musk has had the newborn’s name changed to better comply with California law — although most people will likely find the new name no less unconventional than the original.

Musk has changed the baby’s name to “X Æ A-Xii” to comply with a birth certificate law that states legal names can’t be spelled with a number. By changing the number “12” in the name to a Roman numeral, Musk says his offspring’s name is now legal.

Can you pronounce the name of Musk’s son? In what ways does having a bizarre name affect a child?
