48-year-old billionaire Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk appears to be losing some of his marbles. Maybe it’s a mid-life thing.

After announcing on Twitter that he was planning on “selling almost all physical possessions” and torpedoing the stock price of Tesla to the tune of $13 BILLION in value, he and his partner, 32-year-old singer Grimes, welcomed into the world their first child together – a baby boy named X Æ A-12.

If you know how to pronounce that then you’re ahead of, well, everyone on the internet who has given it a shot since Musk’s son was born.

Combining the best guesses put forth I am going with X Æ A-12 being pronounced Chi Ash Archangel Musk.

In the Greek alphabet, X is the symbol for the letter chi. Æ is pronounced “ash” in the Scandinavian alphabet. And the A-12 is for the Lockheed A-12, a CIA aircraft codenamed Archangel.

Am I right? No freaking clue. Because neither Musk nor Grimes have offered any real clarification.

In fact, the name is so bizarre not even the boy’s mom can properly explain it.

Tuesday night, Grimes did try to give it a shot, however, tweeting…

•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)

One problem, “their” favorite aircraft is actually the SR-71 which Musk was more than happy to take to Twitter to correct her because apparently he has a death wish.

Grimes fired back at him, tweeting, “I am recovering from surgery and barely alive so may my typos b forgiven but, damnit. That was meant to be profound.”

“U r a powerful fairy princess,” Musk tweeted back, only using emojis instead of just saying it because he’s hip like that.

Despite Grimes’ explanation of her and Musk’s son’s unusual name, people were still very, very confused.
