Singer Grimes deciphered their name with Elon Mask child – X Æ A-12. She wrote that each of the characters hides a certain meaning. For example, Æ is the writing of the abbreviation AI, meaning “love or artificial intelligence” in Elvish.
SpaceX director Ilon Musk and singer Grimes have chosen a truly unexpected name for their newborn son – X Æ A-12.
On her Instagram page, the singer explained its meaning. She said that the name is actually a cipher and that each character hides a certain meaning.
So, X represents an unknown variable, and Æ is the spelling of the abbreviation AI, meaning “love or artificial intelligence” in Elvish. Meanwhile, the A-12 is the name of an American military aircraft.
“The predecessor of our beloved SR-17 aircraft, which has no weapons, only speed,” Grimes said.
Musk, however, corrected the performer in the comments, noting that the supersonic scout was actually called SR-71.
Note that for the head of SpaceX X Æ A-12 became the sixth child, and for Grimes – the first-born.
