The 32-year-old musical artist, Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, is opening up about her newborn son’s unique name X Æ A-12 on Tuesday.
Grimes gave birth to her son with Elon Musk on Monday.
A day after Grimes and her SpaceX and Tesla mastermind boyfriend welcomed their first child together, the singer took to Twitter to break down their baby boy’s unique name for curious fans.
“X” stands for the “unknowable variable,” Grimes wrote.
“Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence),” Grimes continued, before sharing that a part of her son’s name is a nod to the CIA’s Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance plane. “A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent.”
Grimes added that the “A,” known internally by designers during its development as “Archangel,” — which she said is her “favorite song” — while the number “12” stood for the metal rat.
