Musk tweeted that his son's name is X Æ A-12 Musk, leading many fans to speculate on the meaning and pronunciation of the unique name. When one person questioned, "X Ash Archangel?" Musk liked the tweet, implying that it's the correct way to say his son's name.
In the social media user's tweet, they shared screenshots explaining that Æ is a letter in the Scandinavian alphabet, which is pronounced Ash, and that A-12 is an aircraft with the codename "Archangel."
In addition to tweeting his son's name, Musk posted the first pic of baby X Æ A-12, with his face edited to include tattoos that read "savage" and "moody."
"Never too young for some ink," Musk joked in a followup tweet.
