Remember when we posted about the birth of Elon Mush and Grime’s son having a very unique name? If you don’t, you can read more about it here. We now know what it means.
Musk announced the birth on Twitter, revealing the name in the tweet. The internet and all of us here at CeleMojo reacted to the news with memes, jokes, and humor — something that’s not uncommon with celebrity baby names or with Musk, either. Musk has long been the face of internet meme culture.
But now, Grimes has revealed what the name means.
In a tweet, Grimes explained:
- X stands for “the unknown variable.”
- Æ is the elven spelling of AI (love and/or artificial intelligence).
- A-12 is the precursor to SR-17 (the couple’s favorite aircraft, which doesn’t have any weapons or defenses, focusing on speed).
- A also stands for “Archangel,” which is Grime’s favorite song.
So, take those definitions, the name translates as:
“The unknown variable of love and/or artificial intelligence aircraft.”
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️
•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)
•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent 🤍
(A=Archangel, my favorite song)

X Æ A-12 Musk — we still don’t know how to pronounce the name — is the first child for Grimes and Musk together. Musk has two other children — twins Griffin and Xavier, as well as triplets Damian, Saxon and Kai — from his previous marriages.
Grimes announced she was pregnant in January.
