Elon Musk
  • Elon Musk and Grimes have had their first child together, and the world is confused by the baby's supposed name.
  • "X Æ A-12 Musk," Musk tweeted Monday night when asked what they named their son. 
  • Musk is known for posting jokes and memes on Twitter, and it wouldn't be much of a surprise if the baby's name is a joke. Others are speculating that the string of characters he tweeted is actually a riddle with a hidden meaning.
  • Regardless, we have a few clues as to the pronunciation. "X" and "A-12" are pretty self-explanatory, but the character "Æ" is known as an ash and sounds like the letter "a" in the word "bad."

Tech billionaire Elon Musk and musician Grimes have had their first baby together, and the world is a bit confused by his name.
When a follower asked Musk on Monday night what they'd named their new son, Musk replied simply: "X Æ A-12 Musk." He hasn't tweeted since, or supplied any additional information on what the name means.
Musk is a known Twitter prankster, frequently posting jokes and memes for his 33.6 million followers. He's also gotten into hot water in the past for his reckless tweeting about things like taking Tesla private or calling a British cave diver who helped rescue a trapped Thai soccer team a "pedo guy." If the name he tweeted is a joke, it wouldn't be much of a surprise.
Others are speculating that the string of characters Musk tweeted is a riddle or an equation that adds up to the actual name. One person guessed that the name is actually "X Ash Archangel," which Musk liked on Twitter.
But if X Æ A-12 is the baby's first name, we have a few clues as to how it would be pronounced:
  • "X" could be pronounced like the letter X, or since it's the Roman numeral for 10, as "Ten." 
  • "Æ" is known as an ash, which could be the intended pronunciation here. The actual sound the symbol makes is like an "a" in the word "cat" or "bad," according to Dictionary.com.
  • "A-12" pretty much speaks for itself. Some have guessed it's a reference to a CIA aircraft, while others have guessed it's a math equation: A-12=O. 
Either way, we won't know what the true name is, or how it's pronounced, until Musk or Grimes decide to shed more light on the mystery.
