Elon Musk Naming His New Baby ‘X Æ A-12’ Is Causing The Internet’s Collective Brain To Melt

Can someone please do a wellness check on Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk? The 48-year-old entrepreneur appears to be going through some sort of issue that’s causing him to lose his mind.

Last week, billionaire Musk announced on Twitter that he was planning on “selling almost all physical possessions.”

That reveal came shortly after Musk tweeted that he thought Tesla’s stock price was too high, resulting in the company losing $13 BILLION in value and pissing off pretty much everyone who had invested in it.

Not that he seemed terribly concerned about it.

On Monday, Musk announced he and his girlfriend Grimes welcomed a new baby boy and on Tuesday he shared this photo.

He then joked, “Never too young for some ink haha.”

Musk then revealed that the baby’s name is X Æ A-12. Go ahead… try to pronounce it.

One Twitter user suggested it could be pronounced X Ash Archangel because Musk liked her tweet.

The thinking is, Æ is pronounced “ash” in the Scandinavian alphabet and A-12 is for the Lockheed A-12, a CIA aircraft codenamed Archangel. Others have also suggested that the X is means “Chi” so the kid’s name would actually be Chi Ash Archangel Musk.

I guess after having twins and triplets with relatively normal names like Griffin, Xavier, Damian, Saxon and Kai he was looking for something different.

Even if Musk is joking about his new son being named X Æ A-12 the reactions to the mere idea of it have been quite entertaining.
