Explaining Elon Musk baby name

Hello & welcome to FollowElonMusk.com

Imagine calling your son: X Æ A-12

That is the name Elon Musk and singer Grimes chose for their new born. In a tweet Grimes explained the meaning of the name: 

  • X, the unknown variable ⚔️
  • Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence) – Which makes sense, Ai also means love in Japanese 愛
  • A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft).  No weapons, no defenses, just speed.  Great in battle, but non-violent 🤍 – The Lockheed A-12 was a reconnaissance aircraft, used to collect intelligence imagery and had a Mach speed of 3.5

As a bonus, A is also for Archangel, Grime’s favorite song.  – Interesting enough, Archangel is also the CIA’s  internal codename of the Lockheed A-12 aircraft.

So there you have it and now we know.
