Tesla mastermind Elon Musk just welcomed his first child with singer Grimes. The little boy has very interesting parents so it is only fitting that he has an interesting name too. The baby's name is X Æ A-12. What does that mean?

Grimes broke it all down for us in a tweet. She wrote, "X, the unknown variable.  Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence),. A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent."

But wait, there's more! Grimes also said the A represents "Archangel," which is her favorite song and the 12 is the Chinese Zodiac sign for a rat. 2020 is the year of the rat.  Ok, then.

Is this the most unique name you've ever seen? Do you know how to pronounce it?
